Paul Smith’s College recognizes the rigorous academic nature of the International Baccalaureate program and actively seeks students with this academic preparation. Thus, students receiving a 4 or above on their Higher Level IB exams will be given credit for the equivalent Paul Smith’s course. Higher Level exam scores of a 6 or higher will be considered for credit for a two course sequence in the equivalent Paul Smith’s course where applicable. The Registrar’s Office, in consultation with the appropriate Dean, will make the final determination. Students completing the full International Baccalaureate Diploma will be admitted with 30 transfer credits and advanced standing as a sophomore. To be considered for transfer credits and advanced standing, students must submit their official IB transcripts as part of the admission process. No credit will be received for Standard Level courses.
