Students may receive credit for honor scores on Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, A-Levels, and other exams. Although additional test credits may be posted to a student's transcript, a maximum of 8 units from test and transfer credit may be used towards your degree (with the exception of transfer students who can use a maximum of 16).
Students who matriculate in August 2011 or later may count this credit towards the 32 units needed to graduate, but not towards general education requirements*.
Students who matriculated in January 2011 or earlier may use credit from these exams to satisfy the Foreign Language Requirement, the Quantitative Requirement, and at most one course requirement from each of the three divisions.
Bryn Mawr awards students up to eight (8) academic units for qualifying scores on the International Baccalaureate test:

The IBO has published a website about how to request an IB Transcript: www.ibo.org/informationfor/alumni/transcripts/. Bryn Mawr must receive an official score report from IBO in order to evaluate your test results.
For Advanced Exams only, each grade of A, B, C, is awarded 2 units of credit. The exception is for Economics, in which a student must earn an A or B on the exam.
Bryn Mawr does not give units of credit for Subsidiary Advanced Levels.
