SMU senate approves enhanced IB admissions, recognition policy

Saint Mary’s University’s senate has approved an enhanced International Baccalaureate (IB) admissions and recognition policy. The policy will offer admission to graduates from over 180 IB curriculum schools in Canada and over 5,600 schools across the world. “Research shows that IB students tend to transition to university smoother and outperform their colleagues in their first year,” says Seneker. “Recognizing these students and the intellectual and personal growth that they experience both inside and outside the classroom is long overdue.”
