French Baccalaureate credit

French Baccalaureate examinations from the French Ministry of National Education are well-established and internationally recognized. The French Baccalaureate program leads to examinations that provide documentation of achievement that may qualify a student for advanced standing. Credit is awarded for French Baccalaureate coursework if certain requirements are met. Credit awarded by another college or university for French Baccalaureate coursework is not transferable without proper documentation. Official French Baccalaureate examination scores must be submitted to the office of admission. A maximum of 45 quarter hours of French Baccalaureate credit may be awarded. Transfer credit from all sources (including French Baccalaureate examinations) may not exceed 90 quarter hours.
