AP, IB & Dual Credit

This is where the hard work starts to pay off. We recognize that those AP, IB, and dual credit courses mean something beyond just setting you up for success in college. They can be equivalent to college credit here at Monmouth.

In addition to an academic scholarship you may receive when admitted to the College, we want to recognize your achievements by granting credit for your previous work when appropriate.

International Baccalaureate Program (IB)

Scores of 4 or above on both IB Higher Level and IB Standard Level Examinations will be accepted for college level credit. Completion of the IB Diploma with a score of 24 or above (with a minimum score of 4 in all SL and HL exams) will be awarded a full year of credit. A minimum point score of 24 is required to earn the IB diploma.

The specific course equivalencies awarded for each Higher Level or Standard exams are determined through evaluation by the appropriate academic department. If no course equivalency is determined, elective credit may be granted.

Dual Credit

First time freshmen may transfer accredited college course work taken in high school provided Monmouth College offers a similar or equivalent course.

Credit will only be applied when an official college transcript has been received by the Registrar's Office and the student has earned a grade of D or better in the course. Note that a grade of C- or better is required to receive transfer credit for any English Composition or Speech course completed through dual credit. No college credit will be awarded based on a high school transcript.

Students may transfer no more than 16 course credits (64 semester hours) to be applied towards the degree. Only course work taken in the traditional classroom setting will satisfy general education requirements. Transferred courses will appear on the Monmouth College transcript, but grades earned in such courses are not calculated in the Monmouth College grade point average.
