Admission Criteria

International Baccalaureate Correspondence Chart

  • Students may earn a maximum of eight course units from a combination of credit by exam (such as AP or IB) and college courses (dual credit) taken while completing high school. A maximum of four of those eight course units can qualify for Shared Curriculum credit. Each successfully transferred IB score is equal to one unit. These limits do not apply to students who complete an Associate's Degree prior to graduating from high school.
  • Higher Level International Baccalaureate scores of 5, 6, and 7 only, will generally receive one course unit of elective or Shared Curriculum credit. No laboratory credit will be awarded. Credit is not awarded for subjects passed at the subsidiary level.
  • Course electives for IB credit will show as 1TR (Transfer elective) on the IWU academic record. For example, IB Chemistry will be listed as CHEM 1TR for 1 unit.
