How can students earn college credit for IB work?
Most colleges and universities in the United States have published policies regarding college credit for IB work. Some schools automatically award sophomore status to students entering with an IB diploma. Most schools, however, examine students' test results individually to grant credit or advanced standing in particular disciplines. Students should contact college admissions offices to determine IB credit policies or visit the IBO Web site, www.ibo.org/diploma/recognition. IB students may also earn college credit and advanced standing by taking Advanced Placement and CLEP examinations. There are no prerequisites for taking AP exams, and IB students have historically performed exceedingly well on AP exams.
