International Baccalaureate (IB) Policy

In compliance with the State of Texas Senate Bill 111, the university accepts at least 24 semester credit hours of International Baccalaureate (IB) credit in approved subject areas (listed below) from students who have earned the IB Diploma. To receive credit, students must score 4 or higher on Higher Level (HL) exams or 5 or higher on Standard Level (SL) exams. The university suggests that each student with an IB Diploma discuss potential IB credit with his or her advisor or personnel in Academic Services to determine the best use of IB credits for his or her individual degree plan.
