1 – Research your top three college or university preferences. Make a table with your three colleges in the left column and chart the amount of credit hours you would be eligible for if you achieved qualifying test scores and graduated with the IB Diploma. Then, research the cost per credit hour at each college/university and add that data to the chart. Calculate the total cost based on the amount of credit hours and add those figures to the chart. Label the chart accordingly and highlight the maximum amount of money you would be able to save in college tuition if you earned the IB Diploma.
