Lesley recognizes the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum as a challenging program of study and takes the rigor of this program into account when evaluating an applicant’s record. Upon receipt of official results, students completing the IB Diploma may receive the equivalent of one semester of work (18 credits) for Diploma scores of 24-29. Students are eligible for sophomore standing (30 credits) for Diploma scores of 30-45. Additionally, students who take IB courses but do not pursue the full IB Diploma may receive three units of credit for each Higher Level (HL) IB exam with a score of 4 or greater; if the score is 5 or greater, six credits will be awarded.
