International Baccalaureate Exams (IB)

The following is a list of acceptable examinations and Wentworth courses for which credit may be obtained. Scores of 5, 6, and 7 are acceptable for credit.

  • Mathematics Standard Level: MATH1750 - Engineering Calculus I
  • Physics: PHYS1000 - College Physics I
  • IB Humanity/Social Science courses will be considered equivalent if the incoming student places into ENGL1100.
  • * Regarding ECON4102 Directed HSS requirements: If a student transfers both Microeconomics (ECON4154) and Macroeconomics (ECON4102) the Directed ECON4102 is completed plus four additional ECON credits. If a student transfers only ECON4152 or ECON4154 and requires ECON4102, then that student must still complete ECON4102.
