UC Recognition Policy

Currently students receiving the International Baccalaureate Diploma with 30 points receive 30 quarter or 20 semester units from the University of California.

At minimum, these units apply to elective credit; however, each UC campus has developing equivalencies for several of the IB courses of study. At each campus department / majors continue the process of determining which IB courses of study are equivalent to the department / major courses of study.

The UC and the CIBO Recognition Chair continue to work with schools within the state to establish uniform UC a-g admissions lists for clear recognition of IB courses of study. Schools should refer to https://doorways.ucop.edu/list/ and search for International Baccalaureate Program. Click on International Baccalaureate Program (Covina, CA) to see the most recent list.

Changes for the 2008-2009 a-g list have been submitted and are in the review process. Schools with questions on the a-g list should contact CAWS (CIBO) Recognition Chair Diane Sauvageau at 626-966-8331 X 238 or dsauvageau@cousd.k12.ca.us.

Work continues on post admission of IB results with standard level exams remaining a major issue for certificate candidates. Work also continues on the UC system establishing by campus equivalences for all IB test results.

Each UC campus has a designated representative in the Admission Office to address IB recognition issues.

Currently, the CAWS (CIBO) University Recognition Chair and the UC representative are in contact on a steady basis to deal with issues or questions raised on either side.
