To better prepare high school students for college success and transform the online learning space, Jobs for the Future (JFF) has launched a groundbreaking new dual enrollment model: the Increasing College Access Network (ICAN) course.
The ICAN model integrates social-emotional learning (SEL) into dual enrollment courses, which are college courses provided free of charge—and for college credit—to high school students. The goal is to smooth transitions to postsecondary education by increasing authentic learning in online college courses while also reimagining what online learning spaces can be.

The courses, which are the first of their kind, will launch next fall and will be piloted in two Minnesota colleges—Alexandria Technical & Community College and Minnesota West Community & Technical College. The courses will serve more than 800 students between the fall of 2023 and the spring of 2025.
