University IB policy

The University of Pennsylvania recognizes the IB and appreciates the challenge which completing the Diploma program represents. The faculty at Penn support the granting of advanced standing credit to students whose scores on higher level exams are 5 or higher. In general, the equivalent of one or two courses are issued for each acceptable examination result. Penn will also consider issuing credit for individual Certificates when the full Diploma is not obtained. Each evaluation is done on an individual basis upon receipt of the official IB transcript. Questions may be directed to the office indicated above; a detailed and annually updated IB policy sheet is also available.
