Administrative Procedures on Student Conduct
Overview & Definitions
The Dean of Student Affairs will administer these administrative regulations.
Students’ conduct at Long Beach City College must conform to District policy, as well as to college regulations and procedures. The Student Code of Conduct is a key component of the student conduct procedures. The primary purpose of these procedures is to provide a fair and equitable means to address violations of the Student Code of Conduct, which guarantees due process rights consistent with state and federal law. It is not intended to substitute for criminal or civil proceedings that may be initiated by other individuals or entities. The procedures shall clearly define the conduct that is subject to discipline and shall identify potential disciplinary actions, including but not limited to the removal, suspension and expulsion of the student.
It is the responsibility of all College employees to report to the Office of Student Conduct any student behavior that is unsafe or violates the Student Code of Conduct.
