International Baccalaureate Diplomas and Certificates


Students who have participated in International Baccalaureate Programs in their high schools are welcomed to Armstrong State University. In many circumstances, we are able to award college credit for exemplary performance in IB courses. Students who have completed International Baccalaureate diplomas and/or certificates should provide evidence to Armstrong's Admissions Office of their success in their courses. IB courses not listed may be considered by the Department Head of the academic discipline. Students can not earn credit for the same course on the basis of AP testing and IB course credit. A maximum of 24 credits will be awarded.

Note: Credit for standard level tests will only be awarded if the student has completed the diploma program.
