|Arizona||Equal, for courses taught by postsecondary faculty. For community college courses taught by high school faculty on the high school campus, the amount of state aid that the community college would otherwise receive for that student is reduced by 50%.|
For community college districts offering courses in high schools, the agreement or contract between the community college district and the school district or chartering organization must identify the amount received in full-time student equivalent funding, the portion of funding distributed to the district board or charter school, and any amount subsequently returned to the community college district by the school district or charter school.
|Arkansas||Equal, for credit-bearing courses. Public school students in grade 12 who are enrolled in remedial/developmental education courses are not counted for public higher education funding purposes.|
|California||Equal, with qualifications. A community college may include high school students in the district’s report of full-time equivalent students only if the class is open to the general public, and is advertised as such in the college catalog, and/or the regular schedule of classes, and/or an addendum to the college catalog or regular schedule of classes. An exception is provided for a class offered at a high school after the regular schedule of classes is published.|
Dual enrollment students funded at a higher level for special full-time students at a community college. A college is credited with additional units of average daily attendance for these students.
A community college district may not receive state apportionments for special part-time and full-time students enrolled in physical education courses in excess of 5% of the district's total reported full-time equivalent enrollment of special part-time and full-time students.
