Students Rights and Responsibilities

All students are responsible for adhering to college policies and procedures. Please refer to the Student Conduct Rights and Responsibilities page.

Class Changes/Postponement/Cancellation

Any course changes in dates, times or locations will be emailed to students using the email address provided during course enrollment. Because 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. For changes and cancellations due to low enrollment, students will be notified by email. Full refunds will be issued for classes canceled by the College unless noted otherwise in the catalog. Please call 314-984-7777 with any questions.

Inclement Weather

Occasionally, Continuing Education classes are canceled due to inclement weather. Location closings will be posted at stlcc.edu. To sign up for automated SMS notifications of STLCC campus closures or emergencies, visit stlcc.edu/alerts. When St. Louis Community College cancels classes, online and 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. Find out more about STLCC's inclement weather and emergency communication process.

Health and Safety Guidelines

Classes offered in-person may be rescheduled, canceled or transitioned to an online format. Students are required to follow all health and safety directives by St. Louis Community College and local health protocols.

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 dismissed for misbehavior.

Firearms on College Property

No person (except for licensed police officers) 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 vehicle or at College sponsored events on or off College property.

Protection of Intellectual Property

The content of each course consists of intellectual property of the College and the faculty member.

Public distribution or transmission to publicly accessible web environments may constitute copyright infringement and may subject the student to disciplinary action under applicable College policies.


If you require an accommodation for a disability in order to participate in any program or activity, please contact the Access Office at stlcc.edu/disability as soon as possible in advance of the program for consideration of your request. A student may submit this application at any time during their enrollment, but the College recommends submitting the application as early as possible to allow time to make any necessary arrangements.

Environmental Health and Safety

Some Continuing Education courses involve work with materials and products that require special handling. Please refer to STLCC’s Environmental Health and Safety page for additional information.
