International Baccalaureate


The International Baccalaureate subject test is one way to earn college credit by exam.

Students who have completed the test should have their official scores forwarded to the Office of Admission in order to receive credit. This can be done by going to the IB North America website

How scores transfer

Courses listed as credit only and do not become part of the student's K-State GPA.

Each College (e.g. College of Arts and Sciences) sets a policy for how they accept letter grades or credit. View the college information for how credit or letter grades are accepted. It is at the discretion of the academic department whether a test score will be accepted for a specific class. 

The credit will not be reflected on the student's record until the student has enrolled. Students must be degree-seeking for credit to be awarded.

International Baccalaureate Diploma

K-State considers completion of the International Baccalaureate Diploma to be equivalent to a U.S. high school diploma.  Contact the Office of Admissions for details about admission requirements.
