Adams State University recognizes the International Baccalaureate (IB) program and accords special consideration for students presenting IB credentials on an individual basis. To receive college credit, students who take the Higher Level IB Examination(s) must request their scores be sent to Adams State University. Upon receipt of the scores, an evaluation for credit will be performed. Students will be notified by mail of the evaluation results.

Scores of four or higher on the Higher Level IB Examination(s) will receive three or more credits for each examination (two for specific science courses). Students who have earned the International Baccalaureate Diploma and achieve a score of four or higher on all standard and higher level IB examinations will receive a minimum of 24 hours of general education credits. The area of general education and number of credits will be determined by the courses taken. Official transcripts should be sent from the International Baccalaureate Organization for evaluation.
