Crediting of International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB DP) Examinations

 

The Loyola Schools encourages incoming first year college students to apply for credit for the College Board’s Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) Exams they have taken in high school. The crediting of AP or IB DP exams will give students the flexibility and space to complete other programs such as a Minor or Specialization, pursue a double degree, participate in a student mobility program, or take additional free electives.
 

  1. The maximum combined number of units that can be credited through AP, IB DP and the Credit by Exam Program (CEP) of the Loyola Schools is 18 units.
  2. If a student has both AP scores and IB DP scores eligible for credit in the same subject, the student may apply for credit from the AP exam or the IB DP exam, but not both.
  3. Students who did not automatically receive credit for their AP or IB scores are highly encouraged to take the CEP.

Policy on Crediting International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB DP) Exam
 

  1. The Loyola Schools may credit IB courses taken by incoming first year college students within the last four years.
  2. Students may be granted credit at the time of entrance into the Loyola Schools for a score of at least 5 in the IB Higher Level examinations and a score of 7 in the IB Standard Level examinations. 
  3. The IB Courses that may receive credit are as follows:

Notes for Math

  1. If an AP/IB Exam/Course is credited for a Calculus course, then the student is exempted from taking MATH 21 or Diagnostic Exam for Pre-Calculus.
  2. If the student shifts to another program that requires a different Calculus course, then the credit awarded to the AP/IB Exam/Course shall be given to the new Calculus course, if applicable.
 

Notes for DISCS

  1. Crediting is only applicable to students in the BS CS, BS CS-DGDD, or BSMS CS programs. 
 

Notes for Chemistry

  1. There is NO credit by exam or AP or IB credit offered for the companion lab classes for CHEM 021.11, CHEM 021.31, or CHEM 121.01. Students who earn credit for these lecture classes still need to take the respective lab classes which are CHEM 021.12, CHEM 021.32, or CHEM 121.02.
