International Baccalaureate Certificates (IB)

CSU San Marcos awards six units of credit for each International Baccalaureate Higher Level subject examination passed with a score

of 4 or better (except that three units of credit are awarded for the Psychology examination).

To receive credit, applicants who plan to enroll at CSUSM should request that a copy of their IB transcript of grades be sent to the Office of Admissions for evaluation. IB examinations not covered by the IB course articulation table will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, via petition to the Registrar.

Please review the IB Equivalency Table regarding what requirements/credit you have received at CSUSM for your IB exams.
