IB Equivalents

As you prepare to create your class schedule, keep in mind any IB exams you have taken. You can not earn credit for the same course twice. Iona course equivalencies are listed below. Please ensure that you have informed Admissions or the Advising Center of your having taken IB Courses in high school. Also, you must ensure that you request the International Baccalaureate Organization send Iona College a copy of all of your exam scores after you have completed your last exam. Have the IBO mail all scores to:

Iona College
The Center for Advising
715 North Avenue
New Rochelle, New York 10801

Students may receive college credit for High Level Courses only for which exam scores are 5 or higher. In cases where credit is awarded, the equivalent Iona course(s) will be added to the official Iona record, once the IB official transcript has been received and evaluated.
