In the event of an emergency, please contact Campus Police immediately at (562) 860-2451 Ext. 2325, or call 911.
Supporting the Mission of Cerritos College, The Office of Student Conduct & Grievances (OSCG) strives to administer a thorough, transparent, and fair student conduct process that upholds community standards while respecting the rights of the individual.
For questions or consultation please contact Dr. Cynthia Lavariere at firstname.lastname@example.org, or ext. 2483.
Students are responsible for upholding the Standards of Student Conduct (BP 5500), including academic honesty and behavior expectations. Students who are alleged to have violated these Standards are subject to the Student Discipline Procedures (AP 5520).
To report an instance of academic dishonesty or student misconduct, use the online Student Conduct Incident Reporting Form.
Faculty & Staff seeking to submit at Student Conduct Incident Report are encouraged to review this Guide for Writing a Student Conduct, CAIR, or Title IX Report prior to filling out the form.
Students have the right to address grievances regarding academic, administrative,
and instructional matters, that deprive them of their rights as set forth in the Student Rights and Responsibilities, or any state, federal, or local code. Please review applicable board policies (BP 5530) and administrative procedures (AP 5530) for Student Rights and Grievances.
For general grievances not related to final course grades, please complete the General Grievance Form and you will be contacted by the OSCG.
For grievances involving grade disputes, students must prove that their assigned course grade involved “mistake, fraud, bad faith, or incompetency”. Only final course grades may be grieved. After attempting to resolve the concern with the faculty member, students may fill out the online Student Grade Grievance Form to initiate the grade grievance process.
