Cornell is a leader among American Universities in enrolling undergraduate students who have earned the International Baccalaureate (IB). Cornell regards the IB program as a rigorous, advanced program of study, and students are pleased to find similar opportunities here at Cornell through interdisciplinary courses, independent majors, honors programs, and undergraduate research opportunities. 


International Baccalaureate subject requirements vary by the college or school at Cornell. Credit for higher level IB courses is given to students on a course by course basis, independent of the IB diploma program. Please see the college and school admissions requirements website for information about recommended secondary school coursework for each undergraduate college or school. For detailed information about IB credit, please visit the Cornell University Registrar’s website. The How to Apply page may also be a helpful resource.
