International Baccalaureate

Students can earn International Baccalaureate (IB) credit with minimum score of 5 except where noted.1  

IB credits cannot be used to meet Coastline  College's twelve-unit residency requirement for the Associate degree. Students who have earned credits from a IB exam should not take a comparable college course since credit will not be granted for both.
