How do we find out the scores?

IB scores are released online in July.  Students will be given a password and PIN to access their IB account.   Your IB transcript will automatically be sent to the college you designate in Naviance as your choice.  Should your plans change over the summer you must contact IB at http://ibo.org/iba/transcripts/electronic.cfm to arrange for delivery of scores.
