COLLEGE CREDIT FOR IB
Colorado State Colleges
In 2003, the Colorado legislature passed a measure guaranteeing a minimum of 24 semester hours of credit for all IB Diploma graduates who elect to attend a state college or university in Colorado and do not have a score of less than 4 on an IB exam. The schools in Colorado want to keep the IB students in the state because they are top-quality candidates. This is a huge incentive for attending college in state. (Note that this law excludes CO School of Mines.)
