International Baccalaureate Program

JMU recognizes the International Baccalaureate diploma and individual IB courses by awarding credit on IB higher-level examinations in essentially the same manner in which credit is awarded for Advanced Placement courses.  Some standard-level examinations will also be considered for credit. 

Please contact the International Baccalaureate Organization for information on providing your IBO transcript to JMU. More information can be found at https://www.ibo.org/en/programmes/diploma-programme/assessment-and-exams/requesting-transcripts/.
