International Baccalaureate Exams

Students entering Georgia Tech may receive college credit based upon their scores on the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Exams taken in conjunction with designated high school advanced placement classes, SAT II Subject Tests, The International Baccalaureate, and/or Georgia Tech Departmental Exams.

Once enrolled at Georgia Tech, students are not allowed to take College Board (Advanced Placement and SAT II), International Baccalaureate, or A-Level Examinations for credit. All examinations must be completed prior to the student's enrollment date. Students who offer satisfactory evidence that they are qualified to do so may receive credit for a course by examination at Georgia Tech. Such an examination is called an Examination for Advanced Standing.

**Please note:  The awarded credit for BIOL 1510 and BIOL 1520 will be updated to BIOS 1107 and BIOS 1107L and BIOS 1108 and BIOS 1108L effective Spring 2020.
**Effective 2020-21, credit for High Level Physics will be PHYS 2XXX (4 credits). Georgia Tech will no longer award credit for PHYS 2211 and PHYS 2212.
**Note: Changes to Modern Languages credits are for first year students entering 2020-21.
