International Baccalaureate (IB)

The International Baccalaureate Program is described as a “demanding pre-university course of study that leads to examinations; it is designed for highly motivated secondary school students and incorporates the best elements of national systems without being based on any one.” Scores achieved for the Higher Level examinations are eligible for pre-matriculation transfer credit. Students who achieve a 5, 6, or 7 on an IB exam will receive 1.0 unit of transfer credit. Also, as with AP credits, 4.0 units is the maximum allowable amount of transfer credit.

Note: Scores will not appear on the transcript for International Baccalaureate credit, only the department, course title, and units transferred.
