Student Conduct, Complaint & Grievances

If you have a concern and aren’t quite sure how to address it, you have come to the right place.

Moorpark College has a “students first” mission in all facets of the student experience. Our goal is to provide wrap-around support. This webpage is designed as a guide for issues students experience that may require additional help.

Complaint and Grievance Procedures

Students are protected against capricious, arbitrary, unreasonable, unlawful, false, malicious, or professionally inappropriate evaluations or behavior by a faculty member, a staff member, an administrator or an official of the College or another student. Student complaints may be classified as grievances and fall into one of three categories: Academic, Non-Academic, and Discrimination.

It is our charge to provide a prompt and equitable means of resolving student grievances. These procedures shall be available to any student who reasonably believes a Moorpark College institutional decision or action has adversely affected his or her status, rights, or privileges as a student.

Here's How

The forms and procedures for academic and non-academic grievances are listed below and may be submitted to the front desk of the Division Office of Student Learning located on the 3rd floor of the Moorpark College Library Learning Resource Building, Room LLR-314. If you have any question you may email mcdivision128@vcccd.edu or call (805) 553-4848

The Honors Program is an adventure

It is a fun and exciting intellectual journey that challenges students to be creative, curious and reflective.

Getting Started

Associated Students of Moorpark College (ASMC)

Every registered student at Moorpark College constitutes the enrolled student body and is thereby a member of the Associated Students of Moorpark College, otherwise known as ASMC. Each spring semester the Moorpark College student body elects the ASMC Board of Directors. The ASMC Board of Directors is comprised of Moorpark College students who are volunteering their time to serve their campus community as the sole representative body of the students. 

ASMC will hold its standing weekly Board of Directors meetings on Thursdays at 4:00 p.m. during the 2022 Spring semester. Please view their weekly agendas, available on BoardDocs, for meeting location and access information, as well as to view their priorities and planning.
