International Baccalaureate (IB): IGETC Credit

  • A score of 5, 6, or 7 on Higher Level (HL) exams is required to grant credit for IGETC certification.
  • An acceptable IB score for IGETC equates to either 3 semester or 4 quarter units for certification purposes.
  • Students who have earned credit from an IB exam should not take a comparable college course because transfer credit will not be granted for both.
  • Students should consult a counselor for the UC policy concerning IB credit.
