International Baccalaureate (IB) Equivalencies

International Baccalaureate (IB) exams are taken after students complete the corresponding International Baccalaureate course in high school. To qualify for college credit, students must earn an appropriate passing score on the nationally administered exam. 

Broward College uses the minimum scores, credits, and guidelines for awarding credit for exams established by the State of Florida's Articulation Coordinating Committee (ACC). For additional information, please review Broward College Policy 6Hx2-4.11 and Broward College Procedure A6Hx2-4.11.
