Credit for Previous Study - International Baccalaureate (IB)

MIT recognizes and gives credit for high scores on certain Higher Level (HL) International Baccalaureate examinations, based on appropriate documentation.

Reporting Your Scores

To receive credit you must ask the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) to release your scores to MIT; in most cases this can be done through the Candidate Results Service. MIT downloads reports electronically from the IBO: there is no need to send a copy of your certificate or diploma.
