The student code of conduct helps promote a safe and welcoming environment for all students. Know your rights as a student and how to report issues and concerns.

Student Code of Conduct

Moreno Valley College works to ensure a safe, welcoming, and productive learning environment. As such, MVC has a student code of conduct as well as methods of reporting concerns or misconduct for both students and college employees. For more information regarding our efforts toward safety and accountability, please see the information below.

About Crisis Intervention

Student Complaints

Student concerns are important to us. MVC strives to facilitate open communication and accountability. If an informal resolution is not satisfactory, a current or potential student, or group of students, may submit a complaint/grievance if they reasonably believe they have been subject to unjust action, denied rights as a student, or discriminated against by a college office or employee.  

The student complaint form can be submitted on any device with an internet connection. The Dean of Student Services will contact you within a few business days of receiving the report.

Grade, Registration and Financial Aid Appeals

Discrimination Complaints

Students who wish to file a discrimination or sexual assault or harassment complaint may do so by reaching out to the Title IX Coordinator and their campus Title IX representative, led by Riverside Community College District’s Diversity and Human Resources division.

Report Sexual Assault or Harassment

Students who wish to file a sexual harassment complaint or report sexual assault may contact the Title IX Coordinator and their campus Title IX representative, the College Safety and Police department, or Student Health and Psychological Services. Students may also contact the local police or call 911 for any emergencies.

Moreno Valley College takes these issues seriously and, due to the sensitive and timely nature of these incidents, encourages early reporting. Reporting incidents is not mandatory, and you may always seek advice without filing a complaint but know that delaying a report may affect your legal rights. 

Our Policies

Moreno Valley College and the Riverside Community College District are committed to diversity, equity and fairness. We do our best to promote a culture of care to ensure all campus and community members feel heard and valued. Harassment of any employee/student is strictly prohibited. 

For Employees

Faculty, classified staff, and managers can report violations of the Standards of Student Conduct when students are disruptive or violate the Student Code of Conduct. A report may not necessarily require disciplinary action, but any incident of a violation should be reported to determine whether a student's violations warrant action.
