International Baccalaureate (IB) Credit Table

Howard Community College (HCC) awards credits for International Baccalaureate (IB) Exams with a score of 4 or better.  To receive credit for IB Exams, you must have an official score report sent to HCC’s Office of Admissions and Advising and complete a "Transcript Evaluation Request" form.  When transferring from HCC to another institution, please be aware that each college sets their own policy on required scores and credits awarded.  Therefore, your IB transfer credit may be awarded differently at another institution.  If you have successfully completed an exam which is not listed below, you may still submit an official score report for review.
