International Baccalaureate

The University of Tampa offers exceptional benefits to students who complete the full International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma. UT will grant credit to students who have earned an IB certificate.  
  • Sophomore standing is available for students with IB diploma scores of 30 or higher.
 

Beyond these benefits, UT evaluates IB higher-level exam scores in much the same way it evaluates AP scores. Students should indicate that they would like official IB test scores sent to UT. The University will grant credit only for higher level subjects. For grades of 4, 5, 6, and 7, UT will award one year of credit in that subject which normally equates to 6 or 8 semester hours of credit. A maximum of 30 hours of credit may be awarded. Finally, the official IB certificate is required in order to award credit and certain scholarships.

U.S. citizens are eligible for annual renewable merit scholarships of up to $14,000 with IB GPA's of 3.2 or higher and appropriate test scores. An additional $1,000 award is available for IB diploma recipients. Other state, federal and university aid is available for qualified students (U.S. citizens and permanent residents).

The following credit is granted for a score of 4 or higher on IB higher level courses (no credit is given for "Subsidiary" or "Standard Level" courses):
