International Baccalaureate

Entering students who have participated in International Baccalaureate (IB) Programs while in high school may receive college credit if they attain scores of five (5) or better on the seven (7) point scale for the higher level (HL) course results. Students must have their official results mailed directly from IB to the Registrar’s Office at Grand View as soon as they are available. Transfer students must also have the test results mailed directly to the Registrar’s Office. Results can be ordered online at All equivalents will be listed as non-coursework, so they will meet some requirements but will not count toward GPA. Some exams are not directly equivalent to courses at Grand View but can be applied to core or elective requirements. Most IB cases are handled on an individual basis through the Registrar Office.
