Due to COVID-19, the International Baccalaureate Organization announced the cancellation of their May 2020 exams. Nevertheless, IB gave students a grade for each of their registered exams on the normal 1-7 scale, using a calculation that took into account their coursework grades and their predicted grades. Read the IBO's explanation as to why they re-graded many predicted scores for the May 2020 exams.
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is committed to supporting our incoming students and ensuring that they have a smooth transition to their higher education studies. Thus, academic credit is still being awarded for strong performance on all IB exams based on the calculated grades that the IBO has provided. The credit policies below apply to all students entering Illinois in Summer 2020, Fall 2020, or Spring 2021. Only scores resulting in credit are shown.
If you are not seeing the new 2020-2021 policies in either the webpage or the downloadable PDF, please clean out your cache and refresh the page.
For descriptions of the courses listed in the table below, please see the Courses of Instruction section in the Academic Catalog.
Course numbers listed as 1 - - or 2 - - are considered elective credit within the stated subject area. This is because our campus does not have an equivalent course that corresponds to the AP course. Students can apply elective credit towards their graduation requirements. Students should consult with their academic advisor to determine how this test-based credit may best be used to meet their specific curriculum and program requirements.
