Impact Statement:

No impact on faculty teaching loads. Students who have the appropriate scores on the Higher-Level IB exams in History will now receive academic credit and hours.

 

Rationale:

Currently, students who take these exams do not receive academic credit. Adding the History Departmentís policy on IB Exam credit to the catalog will allow students to receive hours and appropriate credit for the courses.
