Office of Student Conduct
Highline is in the process of revising our
Washington Administrative Code (WAC) pertaining to student conduct. Student rights will be
separated from the Student Conduct Code and will be published as
an internal document, as student rights are not subject to the
Washington Administrative Code. The Student Conduct Code
is being expanded to include sections pertaining to marijuana
use, cyber-misconduct, and disciplinary processes specific to
sexual misconduct. A new appeal process, Brief
Adjudicative Proceedings (BAP), is also being initiated.
A public hearing will be held on Tuesday, May 26th at 1:00
p.m. in building 2 if you would like to hear an overview of
changes and make comments. Comments may also be sent
via email by Thursday, May 28, 2015 to
