International Baccalaureate

The College of Idaho has found International Baccalaureate (IB) students to be very successful during their tenure on campus. The College of Idaho appreciates the rigor and integrity of the IB curriculum. Therefore students who have completed the IB diploma with a minimum score of 28 will receive the following:

  • 30 units of credit toward graduation upon enrollment.
  • Preferred status for admission.
  • Enhanced opportunity for merit scholarships.

For those who earned the IB Diploma with scores lower than 28, College of Idaho credit will be awarded as follows:

IB Diploma Score/Points C of I Credits
27 25
26 20
25 15
24 10

Credit toward completion of Graduation Requirements will be determined on a course-by-course basis.

For those who have taken IB courses but have not earned the IB Diploma, credit will be determined on a course-by-course basis.

High school students who enroll in the International Baccalaureate Diploma program and take Advanced Placement courses during their high school years will receive college credit based only on their Diploma score. If an AP exam is taken in an academic area not offered through the IB Diploma program, students may receive college credit at the discretion of the Registrar.
