Student Conduct & Due Process

Student Conduct Code

The Chabot-Las Positas Community College District encourages all students to pursue academic studies and other college-sponsored activities. In pursuit of these goals, the student should be free of unfair or improper action from any member of the academic community. The District accords every student the right of protection. Students, however, are responsible for complying with college and district regulations and for meeting the appropriate college requirements. The Colleges have an obligation to maintain conditions under which the work of the colleges can go forward freely, in accordance with the highest standards of quality, institutional integrity and freedom of expression. In joining the academic community, the student enjoys the right of freedom to learn and shares responsibility in exercising that freedom. A student is expected to conduct himself or herself in accordance with standards of the college.

When a student is charged with misconduct such charge shall be processed in accordance with the District policy and procedure in order to protect the student's rights and the college's interest. Disciplinary action may be imposed on a student for violation of law, district and college policy and regulations, the Education Code and the Administrative Code. Provisions related to disciplinary action shall be published and available to students, faculty and management staff. Student conduct may result in disciplinary action by the college and/or criminal prosecution. It is the policy of the District not to impose student discipline for acts occurring away from the college and not connected with college activities, unless the student's conduct affects the functions of the college.
