Proficiency credit is awarded on the basis of sufficiently high scores from 16 IB exams and is subject to change upon annual review. The policies below apply to all students entering Illinois in Summer 2009, Fall 2009, or Spring 2010.
CHANGES FOR 2009-2010: There are no changes in IB policy for 2009-2010.
The University of Illinois recognizes the value of the Advanced Placement (AP) Program and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme. However, students should be aware that there are times when it is in the student’s best interest to take the U of I course that corresponds to the AP or IB credit instead of accepting the test-based credit, so as to be better prepared for the rigors of the subsequent course in the sequence. Students are able to consult with their academic advisors during Summer Registration in order to determine what will be most appropriate for their individual plan of study.
New undergraduate students who have not already earned college-level credit in the subject are allowed to take a U of I departmental proficiency exam in Math, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, French, German, or Spanish if they wish to try to proficiency out of an introductory course.
