Earn credit for International Baccalaureate and British-Style exams

IU Kokomo recognizes both British-style Advanced-level exams (except from Sri Lanka) and International Baccalaureate (IB) higher-level exams when awarding credit and course exemptions.

You can earn up to 8 credit hours per exam for IB higher-level scores of 5 or higher. Credit is awarded for the British Advanced-level exams when a grade of D or higher is earned.

To be considered for IB credit, have a copy of your result slip sent to the IU Kokomo Office of Admissions. In the case of the British-style Advanced-level exam, an official, certified copy of the A-Level Certificate is required.
