International Baccalaureate (IB)

As of the start of Fall 2013, an “IB Language A Literature HL” or “IB Language A Language and Literature HL” score of 4 meets the requirement, meets C3, and gives 6 units.
Note: An “IB Language B” score of 4 does not meet the requirement, but still gives 6 units.
For IBs taken prior to Fall 2013, please contact Advisor Ms. Hilary Taylor.

Sending Scores

If the score was part of your admissions packet to CSUSM (via an official score sent by IB directly or a score showing on another CSU transcript), then Admissions noted in your student record that you fulfilled the requirement. If you sent the score within the last month, please wait for it to be processed. If you sent the score more than 30 days prior, you might like to complete the ARR Correction Form.

If CSUSM does not have your score, have IB send an official copy to the Office of Admissions and Recruitment or hand-carry in a sealed, official copy. To request a score, go to the International Baccalaureate website. Scores cost $11 or are free if requested within the exam grace period.
