Credit for IB (International Baccalaureate) Exams

Indiana University Southeast recognizes International Baccalaureate (IB) higher-level exams when awarding credit and course exemptions. We award up to 8 credit hours (per exam) for IB higher-level (HL) scores of 4 or greater. No advanced standing is awarded for standard-level exams, regardless of the score earned.

To be considered for IB credit, have a copy of your official IB transcript sent to the IU Southeast Office of Admissions.
