Credit for International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBD) (Archived)

The International Baccalaureate Diploma is an international program of courses and exams offered at the high school level. In keeping with Senate Bill 111 passed in 2005, the DCCCD will grant (CR) credit for IB exams with certain required scores beginning Fall of 2006.

Texas institutions of higher education must award 24 hours of course specific college credit in subject appropriate areas on all IB exams scores of 4 or above as long as the incoming freshmen have earned an IB diploma. However, course credit does not have to be awarded on any IB exams where the score received is a 3 or less. This may mean that such students will not receive 24 hours of college credit, even if they have an IB diploma.

Students must send an IB transcript to the DCCCD college of their choice. All IB students must show proof of meeting the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) requirements prior to their initial enrollment at Dallas County Community College District.

The DCCCD will not award a diploma based solely upon the number of IBD credits transferred in toward a degree requirement. DCCCD and SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools/Commission on Colleges) policies require students to take 25% of credit hours through DCCCD instruction for graduation purposes.

Students bringing in an IB transcript for credit evaluation should consider the total number of qualifying credits to be awarded. Additional hours above the required amount to graduate may have an adverse impact on students' financial aid or other grant programs. In addition, no Texas public university or college shall be required to accept in transfer or toward a degree program more than sixty-six (66) semester credit hours of lower division academic credit.
