Why Take IB Exams?

IB Exams could potentially earn college credit for a student, but the exams also have lasting benefits beyond credits.  Please see these two documents:
 
IB Exams and College Credit
 
IB Exams can earn students college credit; however, each university and college has a different policy.  Be sure to check the school's website to find the policy in writing.  Here is Temple University's policy for IB Credit:  IB Recognition.  This is an example of a good policy.  Make sure to read the specifics of a school's policy to determine how they apply credit.  If you have any questions about IB Recognition, please the DP Coordinator or the DP Academic Counselor.
