Policies & Procedure
Welcome to Stautzenberger College’s Policies and Procedures page. Many of Stautzenberger College’s Policies and Procedures are located in our Catalog and Student Handbook. Below are some additional Policies and Procedures that may or may not be included in either the Catalog or Handbook that are of equal merit.
Specifically, there are two primary types of associate degree programs: those that are “occupational” and those that are “academic”.
-Students who choose an applied associate degree are planning to enter the workforce immediately after completing their degree. These degrees contain fewer “general education” classes (i.e., math, social sciences, English, etc.), but a greater number of classes in the specific career or field of study.
- Students who choose a transfer associate degree are planning to go on to a 4-year college for a bachelor degree. These degrees contain a greater number of “general education” classes, but fewer classes in the specific career or field of study.
Please note: Stautzenberger College, Brecksville specializes in offering programs designed to get students into the workforce as quickly as possible - with greatest likelihood of beginning their careers with little or no additional training from the employer or another educational institution. Our programs are occupational by design, which will impact the transferability of our credits to other non-occupational college programs.
Also be aware that no college or university can require another college or university to accept credits on behalf of its students absent an articulation agreement between the two institutions. An “articulation agreement” is an agreement between two colleges as to which credits the receiving college will accept for transfer towards one or more of their academic programs. These agreements facilitate (but do not guarantee) the transfer of credits for students wishing to earn a bachelor’s degree.
Currently, Stautzenberger College, Brecksville, has articulation agreements with:
In the event of a tornado, the emergency alarm system (strobe only) will be triggered and the emergency will be announced by intercom and an emergency notice will be sent to all offices, classrooms, labs and library computer monitors. All students and staff must move to the interior rooms of the building, away from all windows. They are to assume a crouched position under a table surface until an “all clear” is given.
In the event of fire or smoke, the emergency alarm system (sound and strobe) will be automatically triggered by smoke or heat and an emergency notice will be sent to all offices, classrooms, labs and library computer monitors. Every room in the facility is equipped with an emergency exit route prominently displayed. All students must move to the closest exit and make their way to the business park marquis at the intersection of Miller Road and Katherine Boulevard. Designated staff will first ensure the safety of students. Once the building is vacant, if possible, animals will be removed from the kennels to the west parking lot. Emergency services will be contacted through the emergency alarm system and by cell phone from a secure and safe location. Emergency responders are aware of the presence of animals and will work to secure their safety.
In the event there is an emergency involving firearms or other weapons, the emergency alarm system (strobe only) will be triggered, the emergency will be announced by intercom, and an emergency notice will be sent to all offices, classrooms, labs and library computer monitors. All students and staff are to proceed to the nearest exit. Every room in the facility is equipped with an emergency exit route prominently displayed. If unable to move safely to an exit, students and staff should secure the doors, and place as many barriers between themselves and the source of the danger as is feasible. Emergency services will be contacted through the emergency alarm system and by cell phone from a secure and safe location.
In the event that there is any other kind of emergency that is not otherwise delineated above that requires immediate evacuation of the building, the emergency alarm system will be activated (sound and strobe). An announcement will be broadcast over the intercom system, and an emergency notice will be sent to all offices, classrooms, labs and library computer monitors advising of the need to evacuate the building immediately. Every room in the facility is equipped with an emergency exit route prominently displayed. Emergency services will be contacted.
Upon request from the alleged victim of a crime of violence or a nonforcible sex offense, Stautzenberger College, Brecksville Campus, will disclose the final results of any institutional disciplinary proceeding related to that offense.
