International Baccalaureate Courses
The IB program creates students ready to live, learn, and work in a rapidly globalized world.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) offers high quality programs of international education to a worldwide community of schools including Fairfax County Public Schools. At the heart of the IB mission is the creation of a better world through education. Students earn high school credit towards graduation requirements by passing the IB course. Students may also earn college credit by taking the IB exam and earning a specific score that is determined by each individual college. All FCPS students are expected to take the IB exam for any IB course they are enrolled in.
IB exams are scored on a scale of 1 to 7 and each college sets a required score to transfer credits. The links below provide details of the IB transfer policies for four-year Virginia public colleges and universities, as well as Northern Virginia Community College.
