International Baccalaureate (IB) 

The International Baccalaureate (IB) program is a challenging curriculum offered in High Schools around the world that is designed to prepare students for advanced work in many countries' post-secondary systems.  Because it is international, the curriculum is not always as closely aligned with courses in American colleges and universities as AP courses.  Students and teachers often choose topics within a fairly wide range.  Students frequently conduct independent projects as part of the curriculum.  Many subjects have both Standard Level and Higher Level versions, which typically require additional specialized research or independent work.  IB assessments are conducted worldwide so that an American student's work may be evaluated by a teacher in Singapore, or vice-versa.  These assessments often include substantial long-answer components or assessments of student research projects or portfolios.  It may be helpful for institutions to talk with the student or to see the student's projects in order to assign appropriate credit.

Holders of IB Diplomas have been assessed in several subjects and have fulfilled certain other requirements, such as an extended essay.  Students may also be assessed in individual subjects without trying for the diploma.  The credit-granting recommendations in the table below give some additional weight to the performance of diploma holders because of the inter-disciplinary rigor of the entire system.
