STUDENT DISCIPLINE PROCEDURES
Community college districts are required by law to adopt standards of student conduct along with applicable penalties for violation (Education Code Section 66017, 66300, 76030, and 76031). The Los Angeles Community College District has complied with this requirement by adopting Board Policy 5500 (BP 5500) - Standards of Student Conduct and Administrative Procedures 5520 (AP 5520).
The purpose of LACCD Board Policy 5500 and Administrative Procedures 5520 are to provide uniform procedures to assure due process when a student is charged with a violation of the Standards of Student Conduct. All proceedings held in accordance with this Board Rule shall relate to an alleged violation of appropriate standards of student conduct. These provisions do not apply to grievance procedures, student organization councils and courts, or residence determination and other academic and legal requirements for admission and retention.
Disciplinary measures may be taken by the college independent of any charges filed through civil or criminal authorities, or both. Disciplinary action may include warning, reprimand, restitution, suspension, or expulsion from one or more classes, programs, activities, campus locations, or the entire district.
