The following are frequently asked questions regarding information about hearings, write-ups, and appeals. Click over each tab to find the answer to the question.
+ - I have been “written up” by a Resident Advisor. What happens now?
The Resident Advisor will transfer any handwritten information into the student conduct database in the form of a disciplinary report. That report is then reviewed by a Resident Director. Once the Resident Director has given the report approval, a case will be created and you will receive an email to schedule a meeting with a staff member.
+ - I have received an email from someone about making an appointment or scheduling a hearing. What do I do?
Follow the directions in the email. Call the person who sent you the letter and schedule an appointment. Do not reply to the firstname.lastname@example.org email – this email is used for one-way correspondence.
+ - I was sanctioned to do something, how do I find that information?
You would have received an “Outcome” letter notifying you in writing of the findings in the case, as well as the sanctions. If you have lost your Outcome letter contact your Hearing Officer for the case or the Vice Chancellor/Dean of Students office (714) 997-6721.
+ - My student has received a letter about a hearing, what can I do?
As a family member of a student support is important. Support the student emotionally and mentally to comprehend the situation and prepare for the process.

You can also attend the hearing with the student; however remember this is the student’s issue to resolve.
