One-hundred-twelve Latina/o college students provided perceptions of barriers, coping efficacy, and acculturation. Acculturation to the dominant culture was the only significant predictor of enrollment in AP coursework. Additionally, college GPA significantly predicted Latina/o students’ educational aspirations. Differences between males and females were not found on perceptions of barriers and coping with barriers. A discussion regarding the importance of these findings is presented and implications for practice and research will be offered.
