Ramapo College acknowledges the hard work required of the International Baccalaureate curriculum, and commends students who challenge themselves with this rigorous sequence of coursework. The tenants of the IB diploma program mirror the academic goals and institutional mission of a Ramapo College education: cross-cultural experiences, interdisciplinary courses, experiential learning and working closely with faculty. At Ramapo College, we understand what it means to be an IB scholar – and work hard to make sure IB students receive the credits they’ve earned. We strongly encourage IB students who are admitted to Ramapo College to also explore enrichment options such as the Honors Program or Living Learning Community.
IB Course Credit Evaluation
Ramapo College awards credit for successfully completed Higher Level (HL) courses with an HL exam score of 5 or better. To have credit awarded, students must have their official International Baccalaureate transcript sent from the International Baccalaureate Organization. After transcripts are received and evaluated, students will receive a Transfer Credit Evaluation form in the mail acknowledging what courses were accepted for credit, how much credit was awarded and what the Ramapo College equivalent course was determined to be. For reference, you may view the current Ramapo College IB Course Equivalency Chart (PDF).
