International Baccalaureate

Credits Granted at UVU

In recognition of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme sponsored by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), students who complete IB subjects in high school through an approved IB World School and receive scores of 5, 6, or 7 may be granted credits at UVU. Credit will be posted as a "CR" grade and will not be calculated in the GPA. Duplicate credit will not be awarded for corresponding AP, CLEP, or courses previously completed at UVU or other College/University.

Students may receive up to 3 credits for scores of 5 to 7 on standard-level exams and 6 credits for scores of 5 to 7 on higher-level exams (as shown below), up to a maximum of 30 credits. Biology, Chemistry, Physics and some Language courses are the exception and can be granted up to 4 credits for scores of 5 to 7 on the standard-level exams and 8 credits for scores of 5 to 7 on the higher-level exams.
