This study aimed to identify a consensus Advanced Placement (AP) chemistry
exam score among MFT2 institutions, and determine how this value compared
against target schools within the State of Alabama. AP Credit Policies for MFT2
institutions and popular destination schools were researched using The
College Board website (https://apstudent.collegeboard.org/creditandplace
ment/search-credit-policies). The resulting data was analyzed using simple
statistical approaches to gain generalized information. Most MFT2 schools
were found to offer college credit when the student obtained a 3/5 or higher
on the AP chemistry exam. This outcome is one point lower than popular
destination universities for our students at Central Alabama Community
College. Community colleges can use lower AP chemistry exam scores to
attract students who are likely to be college ready, but may not have the
ability (academic, financial, social, or otherwise) to thrive at popular destination
schools. A word of caution is included.
