International Baccalaureate IB

The International Baccalaureate (IB) program’s examinations are administered through high schools. For information regarding the courses or examinations, prospective students should contact their high school counselor or principal. Additional information may be obtained through International Baccalaureate North America, 212-696-4464, or www.ibo.org.

Georgia College awards credit for most International Baccalaureate higher-level examinations. Equivalencies are reviewed and posted each year on the Georgia College website; published equivalencies are subject to change as a result of changes in IB test content and Georgia College course or curriculum changes.

To receive credit for an International Baccalaureate exam, a student must obtain a minimum of a 4 on a higher-level or a minimum of a 5 for standard-level examinations.  Some disciplines may require higher scores for credit.

Students must send an original College Grade Report directly from IB to Georgia College (CEEB 5252) for credit to be received and posted to their records. This request may be made when students register for the exam.

A "K" grade will be awarded for IB credit. This grade will not affect the student's grade point average but will count toward total hours and will fulfill degree requirements.
