International Baccalaureate (IB) Program
Proficiency credit is awarded on the basis of sufficiently high exam scores in 16 IB
subject areas and is subject to change upon annual review. The policies below apply to all students entering Illinois in Summer 2011, Fall 2011, or Spring 2012.
The University of Illinois recognizes the value of the Advanced
Placement (AP) Program and the International Baccalaureate (IB)
Programme. Students should be aware that there are times
when it is in their best interest to take the Urbana course
that corresponds to the AP or IB credit instead of accepting the
test-based credit. You may be better prepared for the rigors of
the subsequent course in the sequence if you decline this credit and take the course. Students are able to consult
with their academic advisors during 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 departmental proficiency exam in math, biology, chemistry, physics, French, German, or Spanish
if they wish to try to proficiency out of an introductory course.
