Intercollegiate Athletic Program The Cypress College Chargers are members of the Orange Empire Conference composed of Cypress, Fullerton, Golden West, Irvine Valley, Orange Coast, Riverside, Saddleback, Santa Ana, and Santiago Canyon Community Colleges. The Chargers compete in conference competition in the following men’s sports: baseball, basketball, golf, soccer, swimming and tennis. Women’s intercollegiate sports include: basketball, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, volleyball and water polo. The Chargers also compete in wheelchair basketball. Cypress students may participate in football, crosscountry, track and men’s water polo at Fullerton College. Athletic eligibility rules and regulations adopted by the conference and the California Community College Athletic Association are rigidly enforced at Cypress College. In general, eligibility rules require an athlete be enrolled in 12 units or more at the time of competition. To compete a second season in a sport, an athlete must complete and pass 24 units with a 2.0 GPA between seasons of competition. These must be completed prior to the beginning of the second season of the sport. Transfers who have participated in athletics at another California community college must complete 12 units at Cypress College before becoming eligible. Since this is only a general guideline and athletic eligibility rules are rather complex, questions regarding eligibility should be referred to the athletic director for clarification.

Inter-Club Council (ICC) The Inter-Club Council (ICC) is financed by the Associated Students of Cypress College and its chair is an elected, voting member of the Associated Student Council. The Inter-Club Council is composed of a representative from each of the recognized clubs on campus. Its function is to coordinate the activities of the various clubs and to provide an organized channel for club support of, or participation in, major campus events. For information regarding current clubs on campus, and/or the forming of new clubs, please stop by the Student Activities Center.


Student publications are approved by the college through authorization of the President of the college and the assignment of a faculty advisor. Such publications are eligible for distribution on campus. All student publications are expected to reflect good taste, be written and edited by students of the college, and conform to editorial policies established by the college. These editorial policies shall include authority of the faculty advisor to exercise the right to disapprove materials with provision for the right of the student appeal to persons designated by the college President. Students who violate this policy shall be subject to suspension and/or expulsion.
