International Baccalaureate (IB)
Effective in Fall 2013, pursuant to BOR Policy 402.0105, the following are the guidelines for the awarding of collegiate
academic credit for students who have completed International Baccalaureate tests. The amount of college credit that may be
awarded is limited to a total of 24 semester hours. In order to receive college credit for IB Diploma completion, students
must have their test scores sent directly to Middle Georgia State University. No credit will be given for scores of 3 or below
on either the Standard Level or Higher Level tests. Standard level IB coursework and assessment scores will not be considered
for college credit unless the student holds an IB Diploma.
For students completing International Baccalaureate Certificates, but not the entire Diploma: Certificate-only students will
not receive credit for work in Standard Level courses. Higher level IB coursework and assessment scores will be considered for
academic credit for both IB diploma completers and for IB students awarded a certificate of completion in a particular subject area
