IB Credit Policy

IB exam scores for 2020 and 2021 will be accepted for course placement or credit, with the understanding of the changes that have taken place to the typical process during these uncertain times.  

New students requesting International Baccalaureate (IB) credit must have an official score report sent to Agnes Scott. You are eligible for a maximum of 32 credits total from AP & IB. One course can count for either AP or IB credit but not both. These are standard credit awards below. Only Higher Level (HL) exams are eligible for IB credit. Your SUMMIT advisor will consult with you regarding any HL IB exam not listed below:
