International Baccalaureate Credit

All courses within the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program will be evaluated for the potential to earn college credit. Students who have earned the IB Diploma may be granted sophomore standing. Assessments will be based on Standard Level and Higher Level coursework and scores earned at these levels. Each student will be individually assessed when an equivalency does not exist. Reported equivalencies must have a score of 4 or higher, “C” or higher for Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge. Equivalent courses at Heidelberg are subject to review.
