Lynn University reviews, evaluates and accepts International Baccalaureate (IB) higher level credentials for possible transfer credit on an individual basis in the context of a student’s proposed area of study. The credit amount and placement level are subject to approval. Course credit is generally granted for each higher level (HL) examination passed with a score of 4 or higher in courses comparable to Lynn University courses and appropriate to the degree program. Credit is awarded only for courses at the higher level; no credit is awarded for IB standard level (SL) examinations, regardless of the scores earned. Lynn University recognizes the academic excellence of students participating in the IB program, and students who receive a full IB diploma with a score of 30 or higher may receive 30 credit hours at Lynn University.
