Academic deans and faculty determine the credit that can be awarded. The Office of the College Registrar does post credit for approved IB examination scores. Students seeking credit for IB should:

  1. Have official scores mailed to:
    Office of the College Registrar
    Tidewater Community College
    P.O. Box 9000
    Norfolk, VA 23509-9000
  2. Using the online form, submit a request for an Evaluation of Previous Educational Experiences to the Office of the College Registrar.
