University Credit

IB Courses

TWU will award unlimited university credit to IB students who have scored a 4 or higher in Higher Level IB courses that are approved by the BC Transfer Guide in the IB/AP section at bctransferguide.ca. Students will be awarded additional credit for the successful completion of the Theory of Knowledge. Most IB Diploma students will receive 21-24 credits at TWU, putting students only 1-2 courses short of second year status.

Advanced Placement (AP) Courses

TWU will award university credit for AP courses to students in which a minimum grade of 4 has been achieved. Transfer credit will be based on courses approved for first year or equivalent course credit by the faculty concerned. An Advanced Placement grade report is required to make this assessment. All AP courses with pre-approved TWU transfer equivalents are posted in the BC Transfer Guide at bctransferguide.ca
