IB courses accepted by AUK are recorded as transfer credits (TR) on students’ transcripts and count towards the minimum 124 total credit hours required for graduation. These transfer credits will not be assigned grades, and therefore will not be factored into the students’ grade point average (GPA) calculations. Students cannot receive IB credit for an equivalent course taken at AUK or another university, and IB credit may be removed from a student’s record if subsequent AUK coursework duplicates IB credit course content.
It is the responsibility of students seeking IB transfer credit at AUK to provide the Office of the Registrar with official copies of their IB diploma and/or certificate transcripts. Students must also provide course descriptions for each of the IB courses they wish to have transferred to AUK. Additionally, it is the student’s responsibility to provide laboratory notebooks and reports when seeking laboratory credit.
IB transfer credits will only be accepted under the following conditions:
American high school graduates applying to AUK can transfer up to a maximum of 3 courses earned in IB Diploma Program (DP) or the International Baccalaureate (IB).
These courses are to be transferred only to 100-level courses at AUK.
Transfer conditions are:
A minimum grade of 6 on the standard level (based on IBO grading scale 1-7).
A minimum grade of 5 in the Higher Level (based on IBO grading scale 1-7).
These DP or IB certificates need to be approved and verified by the International Baccalaureate organization.
