International Baccalaureate Examinations (IB)

There are no changes for how credits for IB exams are awarded for students entering in Fall 2020.

The International Baccalaureate program will use alternative methods to assess student performance in lieu of the May 2020 examinations. We trust that those alternative methods are accurate and will award credit based on their assessment per the chart below for all examinations.


The School of Arts and Sciences recognizes the rigor of the International Baccalaureate program and grants college credit for students who demonstrate strong performance (scores of 7, 6, and 5) on Higher Level exams. Credit is not given for grades of 4 or lower or for Subsidiary/Standard Level exams.

Students must have an official examination report sent to SAS Office of Advising and Academic Services at the address below:

SAS Office of Advising and Academic Services
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
54 Joyce Kilmer Avenue
Lucy Stone Hall, Room A-216
Piscataway, NJ 08854
