Undergraduate Advising at UT Dallas

The University of Texas at Dallas evaluates International Baccalaureate (IB) credit periodically. The equivalencies below are effective beginning with the Fall 2015 term.

International Baccalaureate Credit

Transferring International Baccalaureate (IB) Credit

Entering freshmen must see their advisor to determine the best application of International Baccalaureate (IB) credit. A freshman must weigh the advantages of accepting college credit through IB exams against the possible impact such credit might have on tuition rebate eligibility, tuition charges for excessive hours, the Texas Be-On-Time student loan program, and their readiness for subsequent courses in an academic sequence.

In accordance with Texas Education Code 51.968, The University of Texas at Dallas will award at least 24 semester credit hours to those students who have earned an International Baccalaureate Diploma and present IB exam scores of 4 or higher. An entering freshman should consult an academic advisor to review the credits.

Courses shown in green meet Texas Core Curriculum requirements.
