Information for:

International Baccalaureate Program

ASU will award up to 24 semester hours of course-specific credit in subject-appropriate areas for all International Baccalaureate exam scores of 4 or higher as long as incoming freshmen have earned an IB diploma. Students must supply an official high school transcript indicating that the IB diploma has been earned before any credit may be awarded. College-level credit will be awarded as appropriate and reflected in the chart below, but no grade will be assigned. Credit thus awarded will not count as part of the student’s official grade point average. Credit earned in this manner may not be used to reduce the residence requirements in any degree program. Course credit will not be awarded for any IB exams in which the score is a 3 or less. This may mean that students will not receive 24 hours of college credit, even if they have an IB diploma. Credit will not be awarded for an exam if students are enrolled in the equivalent course or have already taken the course. An official IB score report must be received by ASU before credit will be awarded.
