International Baccalaureate (IB)

The University of Oregon strongly values the IB curriculum, and gives certain special privileges for completers of the IB Diploma, as well as having generous credit policies for both HL and SL exam results. Applicants should be averaging at least 4’s and 5’s to be competitive for admission. Applicants who are pursuing or have completed the full IB Diploma should indicate in the Special Circumstances section of the application if you are pursing or have completed the full IB Diploma.

New international freshman applicants starting in the fall term who complete the full IB Diploma will automatically receive the full award amount of the IDEA scholarship $8,000/year. New domestic freshman applicants starting in the fall term who complete the full IB Diploma will have the GPA requirement of the Summit or the Apex scholarship waived. Please contact us if you have any additional questions.
