IB Key

What is IB?

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) is designed for high school students, ages sixteen to nineteen. IB schools have been established around the world to educate students with a global perspective. Students who complete all of the requirements will receive an IB diploma. Those who do not complete all requirements may receive an IB certificate. For more information, please visit the IB website.

How is IB credit awarded at the University of Cincinnati? 

In collaboration with UC faculty members who teach the subjects covered by the IB, the Credit Evaluation Center has developed a key to awarding credit for this work.

Students must receive a score of 5 or higher in order to receive credit. Please refer to the IB key below as a transfer guide for what credits are awarded.
