International Baccalaureate Policy

Drury University affirms the intellectual rigor of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program in distinct and tangible ways. The program's depth and breadth of focus, commitment to serious scholarship, and global perspective mirrors the values central to the mission of Drury University.

In recognition of the challenging character of the IB Diploma program, successful baccalaureate recipients will receive college credit according to the following guidelines.

For completion of the IB Diploma with a score of:

ScoreMinimum Credit Hours
28 30 credit hours
27 25 credit hours
26 20 credit hours
25 15 credit hours
24 10 credit hours

Credit will initially be awarded as elective credit, with specific course equivalents designated in consultation with department chairs and the university registrar. In most cases, a mark of 4 (HL) or 5 (SL) on a subject area test will warrant credit for specific equivalencies.

For those not completing the diploma program, credit may still be awarded for satisfactory scores on individual subject tests. A complete list of additional benefits for IB students should be requested from your Drury admission counselor.
