For students starting in Fall 2023, TU will award an IB Merit Scholarship of $3,000 per year for IB students who complete the full IB diploma with a high school grade point average of at least 3.0. This scholarship is awarded with full time enrollment for 8 semesters or until you earn your first degree, whichever comes first.
Earn credit for your IB achievements.
The University of Tulsa recognizes the rigor of the International Baccalaureate curriculum by awarding college credit to students who earn the IB diploma or achieve certain scores in the IB program.
At TU, we know what you’re doing — studying late at night, working on science labs and literature assignments, TOK and your Extended Essay and expanding your language skills. We know that you’re studying across a wide curriculum, sometimes in areas that are less comfortable for you than others. We know you’re doing more than anyone else. TU acknowledges your dedication by working hard for you and all IB students. We recognize and reward your effort because we know that you’ll be ready for your college career and your future after college. IB is preparing you, and we want to work with you.
What’s Next? TU.
We understand the language of IB and because we give IB graduates class credits, you might be able to enter TU as a sophomore. TU is a four-year private university featuring more than 90 areas of undergraduate study through the Kendall College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering and Natural Sciences, the Oxley College of Health Sciences, and the Collins College of Business. TU also has a Graduate School and a College of Law.
With an 9:1 student-faculty ratio, TU emphasizes personalized treatment and individual support. TU’s emphasis on undergraduate achievement is reflected in the success of its students who earn prestigious scholarships and fellowships. TU students have won more nationally competitive scholarships than all other Oklahoma universities combined including 5 Marshalls, 18 Fulbrights, 9 Trumans, 66 National Science Foundations, 62 Goldwaters and many more.
What could that extra year mean?
You can have more choices than non-IB students. You can finish college a year early. Or, you can do more in college — take an extra study abroad semester, finish a second major or add a minor. It’s your credit, so you tell us what you want to do with it. TU has world-class professors, outstanding academic programs and state-of-the-art facilities. We recognize the importance of balance during your college years, so there are always fun activities outside the classroom.
