Student Conduct Code of Bellevue College

The college expects students and other members of our campus to use their rights and freedom responsibly. The Student Conduct Code of Bellevue College (WAC 132H-126) defines your rights and responsibilities, which include:

  • The process you and the college must follow to address conduct concerns
  • The way you can address or appeal a decision by the college related to the Student Conduct Code
  • College expectations related to your behavior

To keep Bellevue College safe and to create an inclusive campus, we ask students, staff, and faculty to share their concerns online. Use bellevuecollege.edu/reportconcerns to share a variety of concerns and issues, such as:

Hazing

Bellevue College prohibits hazing (WAC 132H-126, BC Policy 2100 Hazing). Washington State law also prohibits hazing (RCW 9A.20.021). Sam’s Law requires BC to provide hazing awareness and prevention education.

Purpose of the Proposal: On March 30, 2022, Governor Inslee signed Sam’s Law (HB 1751) into law. This bill requires the College to update the definition of hazing and extend the prohibition to include off-campus hazing. Additional edits have been made to be compliant with the Violence Against Women Act Reauthorization Act of 2022 (“VAWA”).

A draft of the proposed Student Conduct Code is available for review.
