International Baccalaureate

Students who participate in the International Baccalaureate Program may receive college credit for exam scores of 4 or better on most Higher Level (HL) exams and 5 or better on most standard-evel (SL) exams. The amount of credit awarded will depend upon the exam scores and the level of the courses. In compliance with SB 111 students admitted will be granted a minimum of 24 hours of credit if they have earned the IB diploma and have no score lower than a 4 on the HL and SL exams. If qualified, credit will be awarded for a score of 4 instead of a 5 on the SL exams as shown on the following equivalency chart:
