IB


International Baccalaureate (IB)

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is an international program of courses and examinations offered at the high school level. An IB program official transcript of grades (diploma or certificate) must be sent to Texas State for evaluation and award of appropriate course credit. Those students participating in the IB program and planning on attending Texas State University should indicate Texas State as the recipient of the IB diploma or certificate. Students presenting an IB diploma will receive a minimum of 24 course specific semester credit hours in the appropriate subject areas for all IB exam scores of 4 or higher. Students who successfully complete the IB diploma program may receive fewer than 24 semester credit hours under this policy if the student has scored lower than 4 on any IB examination administered as part of the diploma program. The following are the Standard (SL) and Higher Level (HL) exams approved for course credit at Texas State.
