“Like the much larger and better-known Advanced Placement program, the IBDP offers High School students college-level courses through which they can earn college credits. But it also offers a special diploma recognizing a more rigorous course of study.” (New York Times Article: EDUCATION; More Training Is Seen as Key To Improving Math Levels, DIANA JEAN SCHEMO, February 2, 2006)

How the IB Diploma is Recognized...

University recognition is a primary concern for IBDP students. The discipline and work ethic necessary to complete the IBDP require considerable commitment from students. IBDP students who have performed well in examinations and have earned the IBDP expect colleges and universities to properly recognize this achievement.

Many colleges and universities have developed their own recognition policies. The individual policies vary greatly, but they all have one thing in common. Through their policies, these institutions make it apparent that they understand and appreciate the IBDP student and the rigor of the Diploma itself.
