Rules, Regulations & Policies

Yuba Community College District students come from a variety of places all over the state — and the world — where laws and other regulations vary. While in California, and on the Yuba Community College District Campuses specifically, you are required to obey all applicable laws, including state, federal, and municipal codes. As a Yuba Community College District student, you are also required to adhere to campus codes, rules, and regulations. We hope you will help contribute to the safety of the campuses by following these guidelines. For more information on California State Laws, visit http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/calaw.html

Rules of Conduct in Campus Buildings

The buildings on the Yuba Community College District campuses are for appropriate use and enjoyment by students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The following policies have been established to promote the safety and security of all occupants and visitors:

  • Follow all posted building rules restricting use or access.
  • Duplicating or distributing keys or card keys without authorization is a violation of the Campus Access Control Policy, and is punishable under section 469 of the California Penal Code.
  • Assisting unauthorized access to buildings or propping open exterior doors, against building security policies, is a violation of the Campus Access Control Policy.
  • Lodging overnight, except in residential facilities or for academic purposes, is prohibited.
  • Adhere to all campus fire safety rules, including prompt, orderly evacuation in case of alarm.
  • Intentionally initiating a false fire alarm is a violation of California Penal Code Section 148.4a punishable by a 1,000 fine or a one-year jail sentence
  • Disrupting classroom, administrative, or other College-sponsored or approved activities can result in arrest by YCCDPD, enforcement by the Office of Student Services, and/or expulsion from the campus.
  • Smoking in buildings is prohibited by campus policy and State law. When smoking outside, keep enough distance to ensure that tobacco smoke does not enter buildings. Sections 7596-7598 of the Government Code prohibit smoking within 20 feet of main entrances, exits, and operable windows of any building owned, leased, and occupied by a California community college. Use of tobacco products on the Woodland campus is prohibited.
  • Riding mopeds, bicycles, skateboards, roller blades, or skates is prohibited in buildings or on walkways where hazards could be created by their use. In accordance with the fire marshal policy, vehicles may not be stored in any public spaces, hallways, corridors, or stairwells, or attached to railings. Bicycles may be stored in non-public space sanctioned, or authorized, in buildings by departments or building coordinators/ managers.
  • Animals (except laboratory animals) or those assisting disabled persons, or as otherwise authorized are not to be brought into buildings
  • Use of campus or departmental bulletin boards must be authorized by the department, or by the building coordinator/manager.
  • Tampering, misuse, abuse, or destruction of emergency equipment or other College property is a violation of Penal Code Sections 148.4 and 594(b).

Disciplinary Action

Responsibility for pursuing campus disciplinary actions involving students rests with the Office of Student Services, which reports to the President. The office is also responsible for notifying the Yuba Community College District Police Department and Title IX Compliance Officer of any allegations of sexual assault. At the direction of the Title IX Compliance Officer, the Office of Student Services will conduct an investigation of the allegations in the case and interview any witnesses. The campus has jurisdiction over offenses by students that occur on College property such as classrooms, in other locations in the immediate vicinity of the campus, during official College functions, and off campus.

Pending a formal disciplinary hearing, the campus may take a variety of administrative measures against a charged student, including restriction of privileges and services, interim suspension, and exclusion from certain campus areas, such as classrooms.

To prevent further conflict between the parties, the campus may use administrative reassignment procedures to limit access to a specific hall or complex during the course of a campus or criminal investigation, or make academic accommodations as appropriate for either party. Normal student conduct procedures will be followed in resolving allegations of sexual misconduct, with the following exception: a hearing in a case concerning allegations of sexual misconduct may be closed to the public if the hearing body determines that the privacy rights of a witness, including those of the individual who reports being assaulted, may otherwise be jeopardized.

Disciplinary actions that may be imposed from the Student Services process may include but are not limited to: written warning, disciplinary probation, loss of privileges and exclusion from activities, exclusion from areas of the campus, restitution, College service, monetary fines, records hold, suspension, dismissal, deferral or withholding of degree, revocation of degree previously conferred, stay of sanction, or other actions.
