Clark College recognizes the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program as a coherent, challenging course of study and responds individually to each participantís petition for granting of college credit. Students may be awarded credit for completing individual areas of study within the program. A minimum score of five (5) on the higher-level examination is required for consideration of credit. Standard-level examinations are not granted credit. A maximum of fifteen (15) credits in IB coursework can apply to the Associate in Arts or Associate in Science-Transfer programs.
Please submit your IB transcripts at the Welcome Center in PSU 002. Once scores are received and reviewed, you will recieve a letter from the Credential Evaluations office. If the scores meet the minimum standards, a petition form will also be sent. You will need to complete the petition form, pay a $5.00 transcription fee at the Cashier’s Office and submit both the petition form and receipt of payment to the Welcome Center.
