Once students are accepted into IB, can they be removed from the program?

Posted by:

Yes, the IB staff has the right and the responsibility to remove students from IB if their academic performance is inadequate to enable them to be successful in the program, if they violate the IB Academic Honesty Policy, or if their behavior is such that it interferes with students' opportunities to learn or teachers' opportunities to teach. All students are subject to the IB Probation and Exit Policy, which states that students must maintain a 3.0 grade average in order to remain in IB. Students not maintaining a 3.0 may be put on a semester's probation and will be given the academic help and counseling necessary to help them achieve the 3.0 average. If at the end of the probationary semester a student has not earned a 3.0, it may be in the student’s best interest to exit the program. If a student’s performance shows extreme deficiencies or failure in a specific critical course, exiting the program will be automatic.
