Credit for International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement, and College-Level Examination Program

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme prepares high school students for success at the university level. The academically rigorous, internationally focused curriculum includes courses in six subject areas. Students taking year-end IB examinations may receive transfer credit at the University of Mount Union. Students should request a transcript from International Baccalaureate North America (IBNA) be sent directly to the University of Mount Union for an official credit evaluation. Students can visit the Office of the University Registrar for details about acceptable courses and scores for transferability.


The University of Mount Union may award course credit for Advanced Placement Exams (AP Exams) and for College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams developed by the College Board. Credit awarded is based on the student meeting or exceeding a minimum score as established by departmental policy. Credit is placed on the student’s academic record by the Registrar upon receipt of official verification of test results from the College Board. 

The following section – AP Test Information - documents the minimum score, the course earned and the credits awarded by the subject area for the AP tests.
