Students Rights and Responsibilities
All students are responsible for adhering to college policies and procedures. Please refer to stlcc.edu/need2know.
Continuing Education (non-credit) classes are self-supporting. The decision to run a class is based on the number of students enrolled. The college reserves the right to cancel if sufficient enrollment is not achieved. Students will be notified by email if a class is cancelled. Full refunds will be issued for classes canceled by the college unless noted otherwise in the catalog.
Occasionally, Continuing Education classes are canceled due to inclement weather. Cancellations will be broadcast on KMOX-AM (1120) and on KMOV-TV, KSDK-TV and KTVI/Fox 2. In addition, all location closings will be posted on the college website, stlcc.edu. When St. Louis Community College cancels classes, off-campus classes are also canceled. In addition, when a particular host school district or institution closes, the Continuing Education classes at that location will not meet.
Refund of Fees
If you wish to withdraw from a class, you will receive a full refund for most classes if the class is dropped three business days before the first meeting. See the course schedule for classes (such as day trips) that require notice more than three business days for cancellation and eligibility for a refund.
|Time of Withdrawal||Percentage Refund|
|Three business days prior to the first class meeting. Must be submitted in writing.||100%|
|Two business days prior to the first class meeting or after the class has begun.||None|
For some special programs and classes an earlier withdrawal deadline may apply. This deadline will be in the course description.
Requests for withdrawals must be submitted in writing to the Continuing Education office in-person, by email at CEDROP@stlcc.edu or via mail to: 3221 McKelvey Road, Bridgeton, MO 63044. Calculation of refunds will be based on the date the request is received via email or the postmarked date. A student may receive either a full or partial refund for exceptional circumstances. For exceptional circumstances, refunds must be submitted in writing (walk-in, email or written notice) within 10 business days of the class start date. Supporting documentation may be required.
Fee Reduction for Adults age 60+
At the time of registration, adults 60 years and older may enroll in select courses for a reduced fee. Class costs vary. View the online course description or contact the Continuing Education office for questions regarding the reduced rate. Reduction will be calculated at check-out.
Senior Citizen Scholarship
Missouri residents who are at least sixty-five years of age will be awarded a scholarship to be exempt from maintenance fees to enroll in select courses on a space available basis. There will be a non-refundable registration fee of $5 per course to a maximum of $25 per semester. Student is responsible for administrative and other fees, such as materials, supplies and books. At the earliest, students may enroll in the class two business days prior to the first class date. Students may not receive a refund for a paid course in order to enroll for a scholarship space in that same course. PLEASE CALL THE CONTINUING EDUCATION OFFICE FOR DETAILS REGARDING THE SENIOR SCHOLARSHIP. The senior scholarship discount does not apply to online classes.
Enrollment in Continuing Education classes and programs is limited to persons 16 years and older except for youth section classes and where otherwise noted.
Safety and Program Guidelines for Youth Classes
All children under the age of 16 who are enrolled in programs through the St. Louis Community College Office of Continuing Education must be accompanied and signed-in by a responsible party at the beginning of each program session. In addition, a responsible party must also meet the participant at the end of the session and sign them out. Appropriate behavior is expected. Students may be disenrolled for misbehavior.
Students are not permitted to bring children to class, nor should children be left unattended in the halls, offices, library or common areas. The college reserves the right to protect the safety and welfare of unattended children. If students leave children unattended, the college will institute disciplinary action.
Textbooks can be purchased at the campus bookstores.
Firearms on College Property
Except for licensed police officers, no person shall possess or carry any firearm, visible or concealed, on college property (including college buildings and grounds leased or owned by the college-college athletic fields and parking lots) or in any college van or vehicle or at college-sponsored activities. College employees, students and visitors who hold concealed carry endorsements as allowed by Missouri law may not carry or bring any firearms, visible or concealed, on college property, owned or leased or at any college activities.
If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation in order to participate in any program or activity, please contact the Continuing Education Access Office at 314-984-7704 for assistance at least 10 business days in advance of program.
