Transfer Credits: International Credits
Students who complete the International Baccalaureate program are encouraged to apply for admission to Elizabethtown College. Advanced placement credits may be granted for scores of 5 or above on the higher-level examinations.
Official transcripts for the International Baccalaureate should be sent directly from International Baccalaureate Organization, North American Regional Office, 200 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10016 to the Admissions Office at Elizabethtown College. The IBO website has instructions on how alumni of their program can request IB transcripts. Transcripts are evaluated on an individual basis.
International A-levels are the most widely used qualification for entry to British universities because they are based on the well-established and internationally recognized. A-level examinations are typically taken by students two years after O-level or IGCSE examinations. International A-level syllabi are offered in numerous academic subject areas.
Cambridge International Examinations, A Level, may be considered for the award of college transfer credit. Students are required to submit official GCE A-level results (not just a student's photocopy) and to meet with the appropriate department chair that governs the course discipline. No grade below C is considered. Syllabi or examples of written work may be requested by faculty for precise placement determinations. Most typically, the credit awarded is one or two terms at the introductory level.
No degree credit is awarded for AS-, AO- or O-level (Ordinary) results.
