International Baccalaureate

A student who does work based on college-level studies in an International Baccalaureate program in a secondary school may take the Higher Level Examinations. Subjects examined at the higher lever (HL) with an earned grade at the indicated level will be considered for transfer credit. Any students interested in receiving credit for the higher-level examinations of the International Baccalaureate program should arrange for an original grade report to be sent directly to the Office of Admissions. If credit is awarded, the student’s University record carries a notation of credits but no grade is recorded. No credit is awarded for subsidiary level examinations.
