CSU GE: The IB examinations may be incorporated into the certification of CSU General Education Breath requirements by any certifying institution. All CSU campuses will accept the minimum units shown and apply them toward fulfillment of the Education Breath requirements.

IGETC: IB exams must be used in area indicated regardless of where the certifying CCC’s discipline is located. Students who earn credit from an IB exam should not take a comparable college course because transfer credit will not be granted for both.

University of California gives elective credit for additional IB exams posted on http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/counselors/exam-credit/ib-credits/index.html
