IB Course Equivalents 2013

The University at Albany will award 30 credits to students completing the requirements for the IB Diploma with a cumulative score of at least 30 (including both Standard Level and Higher Level exams) and no score lower than a 4 (satisfactory). The credits will be awarded as follows:

  • 12-24 credits assigned course credit equivalents on a course-by-course basis for Higher Level courses completed with a score from 4 (satisfactory) to 7 (excellent).
  • 6-18 credits assigned as elective credit for the completion of the balance of the Standard Level courses and the Extended Essay requirement.

In addition, the University at Albany will consider for credit and/or placement on a course-by-course evaluation those IB subjects completed at the Higher Level without completion of the IB Diploma if a score from 4 (satisfactory) to 7 (excellent) is earned.

The following lists the UAlbany equivalents for students who participate in an IB curriculum at their high school. In order to receive credit, students should work with their high school guidance office to ensure that an official IB transcript is sent upon graduation to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at the University at Albany.
