International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement
NIC proudly offers International Baccalaureate (IB) and Advanced Placement (AP) students one of the most generous credit recognition programs in Canada.
We know you’re dedicated to academic and personal excellence and we want to support your hard work by helping you qualify for admission, scholarships, and first-year credit.
If you have completed IB or AP courses in high school, you may be eligible for advanced credit at NIC. Plus, you can guarantee your admission to university at the start of your education, take NIC courses for up to two years, and qualify for scholarships and awards at NIC, UVic, and our dual admission partner institutions.
Plus, NIC’s Dual Admission Agreements with UVic, and many other partner institutions mean you can guarantee your admission to university at the start of your education, take NIC courses for up to two years, and qualify for scholarships and awards at both institutions.
To be considered for admission you must meet the general admission requirements for your program at NIC and your university of choice, as well as the English language proficiency, and supplemental requirements.
NIC works closely with UVic and our partner institutions to align our IB recognition programs. Please consult the BC Transfer Guide for further details.
Individual IB courses may meet your course or program pre-requisites.
For block transfer credit, you must have completed an IB diploma with all higher level courses. If you are planning to transfer your credits to another institution after attending NIC, we recommend applying for transfer credit with your institution of choice, instead of NIC.
