Advanced Placement Program of the College Board

Mount Ida College supports the Advanced Placement Program of the College Board and will award the student up to 30 advanced placement (AP) credits for examinations completed with a score of 3 or higher, unless otherwise stipulated in the student’s program of study. Specific programs within the college may require scores of 4 or higher on the corresponding AP examination in subject areas appropriate to the student’s overall program of study. In keeping with the recommendations of the American Council on Education, Mount Ida College will base the number of semester hours of credit awarded on the scope and content of the equivalent AP course.

International Diploma Program of the International Baccalaureate Organization

Mount Ida College recognizes the academic challenge inherent in the successful completion of course work in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. If the student has completed the full International Baccalaureate Diploma with a total of 30 or more points, Mount Ida College will award the student up to 30 advanced placement credits as appropriate to the student’s overall program of study. If the student has not completed the full Diploma curriculum with a total of 30 or more points, Mount Ida College will award credit for individual Higher Level (HL) examinations completed with scores of 4 or higher, unless otherwise stipulated in the student’s program of study. Specific programs within the college may require scores of 5 or higher on the corresponding HL examination in subject areas appropriate to the student’s overall program of study. Course descriptions and syllabi for IB courses must be submitted for credits to be reviewed. In art and design subject areas, the student may also be required to submit a portfolio to support the awarding of advanced placement credits.

Note: Advanced placement credits awarded by Mount Ida College may be applied toward credits needed for graduation as appropriate to the student’s overall program of study. Students must have an official AP or IB transcript sent to Mount Ida College for advanced placement credits to be considered by the Office of the Registrar. Students who have completed both Advanced Placement (AP) examinations and Higher Level International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations in similar subject areas will not receive credit for both. The maximum number of advanced placement credits that may be awarded is 30.
