IB Credit Exam

International Baccalaureate (IB) Examination Credit

San Jacinto College awards college credit for certain freshmen students who have completed International Baccalaureate (IB) Examinations with a score of 4 or above. In compliance with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board regulations, the College awards 24 semester hours or equivalent course credit in appropriate subject areas to those students who have completed the International Baccalaureate diploma program and who have achieved at least the minimum required score on each examination administered as part of the diploma program.

Students should submit scores from completed tests to the Provost for your campus, who evaluates such scores and authorizes the posting of credit. The current in-district tuition per credit hour fee is charged to record credit. Rules that apply to earning credit by any form of examination appear earlier in the Credit by Examination section of this catalog. Credit by IB examination may be earned in the following courses.
