International Baccalaureate Program

Tarleton State University grants credit for IB higher level exams with a score of 5 or higher and for some standard level exams with specified scores of a 5 or higher. A list of credit equivalents and required scores is listed below for certain higher level and standard level exams. Students may inquire about the equivalent credit for higher level exams not listed if the score is a 5 or higher. State law requires that students who present evidence of completion of the IB diploma may be granted credit for exam scores of at least 4. This can result in the awarding of at least 24 hours of credit.
