International Baccalaureate (IB)

Students who have completed an IB diploma with a score of 30 or higher on IB exams will be awarded 30 credits toward their UB degree and according to exam articulation by UB faculty, toward their major and general education requirements. These IB diploma holders should contact the office of Student Advising Services at 716-645-6013 for more information on the evaluation of their IB exams.

Students who completed an IB diploma with a score of 29 or less and students who did not complete a diploma are guaranteed credit only for higher-level exams with scores of “5” or better. This credit will apply toward their degree and, in some cases, toward major and general education requirements. IB higher-level exam articulation is available on the International Baccalaureate (IB) chart.

No credit is awarded for IB English language exams taken in a non-native English-speaking country or by a student whose native language is not English. A maximum of 30 credits may be awarded for an IB diploma or IB exams.
