Academic credit is awarded for scores of 4, 5, 6 and 7 on any IB Diploma Programme exam, whether Higher Level or Standard Level. Policies are subject to change upon annual review. The policies below apply to all students entering Illinois in Summer 2017, Fall 2017, or Spring 2018.
For descriptions of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 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 IB 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.
