IB Credits

Georgia State University awards credit for International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations, with the exception of English as a Second Language, provided that the academic departments judge the examinations to be comparable to courses at Georgia State. IB diploma completers will be granted college course credit for Standard Level courses with assessment scores of 5, 6 or 7 and Higher Level courses with assessment scores of 4, 5, 6 or 7. For students who did not complete the IB diploma but were awarded a certificate for completion of a specific subject area, credit will only be given for Higher Level courses with an assessment score of 4 or better. The total college course credits awarded for IB assessments may not exceed 24 credits. Official International Baccalaureate transcripts should be mailed directly from International Baccalaureate to the Georgia State University Office of Undergraduate Admissions for review.
