    Taken from Sec. 51.968. UNDERGRADUATE COURSE CREDIT FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS COMPLETING POSTSECONDARY-LEVEL PROGRAM.

    (g) Except as otherwise provided by this subsection, an institution of higher education shall grant at least 24 semester credit hours or equivalent course credit in appropriate subject areas to an entering freshman student for successful completion of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. The institution may grant fewer than 24 semester credit hours if the student received a score of less than four on an examination administered as part of the diploma programme. The institution may grant fewer credit hours only with respect to courses that are substantially related to the subject of that examination.
     
    Typically colleges grant credit only for HL classes, we therefore encourage these course selections.
