University of California IB
Policy
◦ “Students who complete the IB
diploma with a score of 30 or
above will receive 30 quarter (20
semester) units toward their UC
degree.
◦ Designated examinations may
be considered equivalent to UC
freshman-level courses in the
subject and may be used to
satisfy general education or
breadth requirements.
◦ The units granted for IB exams
are not counted toward the
maximum number of credits
required for declaration of a
major or the maximum number
of units a student may
accumulate prior to graduation.
Students who enter the UC with
IB credit do not have to declare
a major earlier than other
students, nor are they required
to graduate earlier.”
