International Baccalaureate Program

High school students may earn college credit by signing up for the International Baccalaureate Program during their junior and/or senior year of high school.

  1. KCKCC accepts higher level I.B. exam credit providing students make a 6 or 7 on the exam. Official score reports must be sent directly to the College in order for students to receive academic credit.
  2. Scores must be submitted prior to enrollment, and if the examination was completed more than two years earlier, credit evaluation is determined on an individual basis by a faculty member in the related discipline, the instructional dean, and the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
  3. Academic credit is posted on the transcript in terms of the College's course number. The notation on the transcript reads: International Baccalaureate Examination. A grade of CR is recorded on the transcript.
  4. Thirty (30) credit hours can be earned through the I.B. program. Students should check with four-year institutions concerning their transfer policies.
  5. Students awarded credit hours through this program are not charged tuition and fees. They are only required to pay the costs charged by the Educational Testing Service to take the exam.
  6. Students must be enrolled and satisfactorily complete course(s) at the College during the semester they plan to receive IB credits.
