Hello IB Parents,
This email is a follow up to Dr. Foster's email regarding AP College Credit.
IB works with universities to help students gain credit for college
classes based on their IB test scores. These tests are taken in May of
the student's senior year and the results are available in July. The
results are then sent to the student's university
of choice directly from the IB. Students are usually accepted and some
have even begun classes before these results are received. Once they are
received, the university can then award credit based on the scores and
what the student is majoring in. Most universities
do not want a student to skip courses that are pertinent to the
student's major. For example, a pre-med student would not want to skip
any biology or science classes.
The link below will take you to the IBO website and to the page that has
a drop down menu for colleges and universities in the United States.
The first drop down button on the page is a list of all of the high
school in the United States and the second button
is the one for the universities. Once you select the university you are
interested in then you can see a brief description of how the
university awards credit for IB scores.
The link is http://www.ibo.org/country/US/index.cfm
In conclusion, the IB Program is a rigorous academic program that will
prepare your child for the rigors and demands of university courses. The
credit that can be earned is a great addition to that but the real
reason that a student should complete the IB Diploma
Program is for the study skills, time management skills, and work
habits that this program instills in it's graduates.
Please let us know if anyone has any questions or concerns.
Dr. Shannon Smith
