Students who complete IB exams must send an original grade report from IB to Truman (the CEEB code is 6483).

Effective Fall of 2013, students entering Truman State University with a score of 30 or higher on their IB, in addition to being awarded an IB Diploma, will be awarded 30 hours of credit (this includes higher-level and standard-level examinations).  If a student does not earn 30 credits and a diploma, credit will be awarded for higher-level examinations only with scores of 4 or higher, except where noted.

All credit awarded from IB will result in a grade of “T” (test). The “T” grade does not affect the grade point average, but does count toward total earned hours.

Truman courses are granted for IB exams in the following manner. Equivalencies for future students are subject to change without notice as a result of changes in IB test content and Truman course/curriculum changes.

A brochure with this information is also available in PDF form by clicking here (2023-2024 Brochure). If an exam that you are taking, or that you may take, is not included in the list, please contact the Truman State University Registrar’s Office at (660) 785-4143 or for equivalency information.
