Judicial Affairs Process


Student Affairs at Long Beach City College (LBCC) is responsible for acting on behalf of the College in matters of student discipline per Student Conduct Administrative Regulation 5012. The Director of Student Discipline or designee adjudicates alleged instances of student misconduct in order to determine how best to resolve these allegations consistent with the goals and mission of LBCC as an educational and intellectual community. 

It is the purpose of the student disciplinary system to further the educational mission of the College by resolving alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct and other applicable policies regarding student behavior. LBCC provides a student the opportunity to address the allegations as laid out in the Due Process procedures. 

Our student disciplinary process exists to set a standard for behavior on our campus. It is not meant to replace or substitute for the Federal or State legal system or other legal avenues. However, the student disciplinary process provides an important forum to respond to the interests of the LBCC community. It is here for two purposes: to help create a safe environment where academic life can flourish and to promote the development of students. 

Our processes are designed to educate and, where appropriate, sanction those students who violate College regulations. We seek both to promote a student’s sense of responsibility by enforcing accountability, and to protect our community, when necessary, which may mean removing or restricting those who pose a threat to others. 

Our intention is to emphasize the peaceful and productive handling of conflict as much as possible and where appropriate. The Director of Student Discipline encourages your feedback, input and consultation. We strive to be a safe, helpful and efficient resource for the entire LBCC community.
