Reporting and Resources
Irvine Valley College faculty or staff who are (a) filing a complaint against SOCCCD employees or (b) reporting a violation by SOCCCD employees should not submit reports through Advocate. These should be reported directly to District Human Resources: 949-582-4850.
Student Discipline Referral
File a Student Discipline Report (Advocate Public Incident Report)
Student discipline referrals should be submitted through the Public Incident Report in Advocate. Any violation of the Student Code of Conduct by an IVC student can be reported through this site by any employee or student.
Informal vs. Formal Reports:
When submitting a "Public Incident Report", you will be asked to categorize the report as Formal or Informal
- Informal Reports are for the purpose of documenting disruptive or potentially troubling behavior in case the behavior is repeated and becomes a pattern. Students are not required to meet with the Disciplinary Officer (Dean, Counseling Services) if the report is informal.
- Formal Reports will require the student to meet with the Disciplinary Officer (Dean, Counseling Services) to discuss the code of conduct violation and any accompanying disciplinary action.
Student Health Care Referral

Please complete a Public CARE Report in Advocate (link above) if you encounter a student experiencing issues with any of the following:
