Academic credit is awarded for scores of 4, 5, 6, and 7 on any IB exam, whether Higher Level or Standard Level. Policies are subject to change upon annual review. The credit earned will be either elective credit or course credit. Click here to see our current IB credit policies.
The easiest way is to check your DARS report. You can also go meet with your academic advisor, who can check your AP/IB credit by pulling up your academic record.
Feel free to contact us to ask whether your scores were received. You may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 217-244-4437 during normal business hours. However, due to privacy regulations, we cannot discuss the academic credit that appears, or that does not appear, on your academic record.
The easiest way is to check your DARS report. If you scored high enough to earn credit, the course abbreviation and the hours earned will be recorded on your academic record, and the grade will be PS, meaning "pass." You do not need to do anything more.
If you did not score high enough to earn credit, you will not see anything in DARS. Most departments inform test-takers of their results via email or a secure website. If you have questions, you should contact the department that administered the test.
The department that administered the proficiency test is responsible for grading your test and submitting the Proficiency Examination Results form to the Registrar's Office and/or to your College office. Please be patient, as grading exams and updating all students' academic records with the results can take several weeks.
Does your AP Score Report or your IB transcript of exam grades show that the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was one of the universities you asked the College Board or the International Baccalaureate Organization to send your scores to?
If so, it could be that there is a problem matching your AP or IB record with your academic record. Common problems include misspellings of a student's name ( e.g., Yu-shen vs. Yushen) or different dates of birth (e.g., MM-DD-YYYY vs. DD-MM-YYYY). Call Placement and Proficiency at (217) 244-4437 or e-mail us at email@example.com
If not, and if you are actively enrolled as an undergraduate student at Illinois, it is not too late to request that your scores be sent to us.
Test scores MUST come directly from the testing agency. We do not accept score reports from students. All test scores will be processed immediately upon receipt.
No, it is not too late. Just remember that the credit policies that apply to you are the ones that were in effect when you first enrolled at Illinois. Check the archives for details.
