International Baccalaureate Credit

The International Baccalaureate Organization has announced the cancellation of their May 2020 exams. The IB will be awarding students a score for each of their registered subjects on the normal 1-7 scale, using a calculation that takes into account their coursework grades and their predicted grades.

As a Catholic, Marianist university for the common good, we are committed to supporting our incoming students’ achievement and ensuring that their transition to UD goes as normal and smoothly as planned. Therefore, based on the calculated scores that the IB will provide, the University of Dayton will continue to award academic credit for subjects listed below that match your calculated scores.
