University RecognitionIB graduates gain admission to selective colleges and universities throughout the world. Students with strong IB examination results may also receive advanced standing of course credit, depending upon the policy of the institution they are attending. In addition, formal agreements exist between the IBO and many ministries of education. The complete recognition policies of North American colleges and universities are currently available electronically in university details, as are country specific guidelines for the USA and Canada. Policies and guidelines from universities and ministries in other regions will be electronically accessible in the near future. Information on the recognition of the IB by universities and ministries throughout the world is also available in IBO's publication series, University Recognition Policies, which are updated regularly.
