When you apply for admission to USask, your IB subjects and grades will be assessed to determine your eligibility to receive transfer credit. Up to 30 credit units, the equivalent of one full year of post-secondary study, may be applied toward your uSask degree program!
Six units of transfer credit will be awarded for most Higher Level (HL) subjects with grades of 5 or higher. Credit may also be granted for some Standard Level (SL) subjects with grades of 5 or higher, usually in the amount of 3 credit units per course.
USask also grants credit for the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge (TOK) with a minimum grade of B.
Once your transfer credit has been assessed, talk to an academic advisor in your college to learn how it may fit into your program of study.
Students who are awarded transfer credit may choose to decline the credit. To do so, you must consult an academic advisor in your college and complete the Decline Transfer Credit Form. If you choose to repeat a course for which you have already received credit, the grade may not be used by your college.
