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.


Make-up Work

Make-up work is permitted when a student’s absence is excused by the Student Services Officer. Make-up work must be completed upon the date of the student’s return to class. If the work that has been missed is an exam, the student is responsible for making up the exam per the rules set by the Testing Center. If a student's absence is unexcused, then make-up work is not permitted.

If a student’s absence is unexcused, then permission to make up missed work is within the discretion of the Instructor. If permission is granted, unexcused make-up work must be completed upon the student’s return to class.

Acknowledgement on Transferability of College Credit

Stautzenberger College, Brecksville would like all prospective students to understand fully the purpose of its educational programs and the likely transferability of its credits. This explanation is to ensure that you choose a diploma or degree program designed to achieve your goals.

Specifically, there are two primary types of associate degree programs: those that are “occupational” and those that are “academic”.

  • Occupational associate degrees are designed to send students directly into the workforce without the need for further education. Occupational associate degrees are also referred to as “applied” associate degrees. You can recognize an occupational associate degree by the designation of AAB (Associate of Applied Business) or AAS (Associate of Applied Science).

-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.

  • Academic associate degrees are designed to prepare students for additional education at a 4-year college. Academic associate degrees are also referred to as “transfer” associate degrees. These programs usually require students to obtain further training or education before entering the workforce. You can recognize an academic associate degree by the designation of AA (Associate of Arts) or AS (Associate of Science).

- 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:

  • St. Petersburg College • Tiffin University • University of Phoenix

Emergency Evacuation

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.


Disciplinary Proceeding Disclosures

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. If the alleged victim dies as a result of the crime, information will be provided to the next of kin.


Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention

Stautzenberger College, Brecksville Campus, will document all drug and alcohol related incidents and fatalities occurring on campus, or as part of institutional activities which are reported to campus officials. Documentation will also be retained for sanctions imposed as a result of such incidents and fatalities.

Veterans Readmission

In recognition and appreciation of service to their country, any veteran who leaves Stautzenberger College, Brecksville Campus to perform military service, will, upon return to the College be readmitted with the same academic status he/she had when last in attendance. This policy does not apply to veterans who have been issued a dishonorable or bad conduct discharge or who have been sentenced in a court martial.

Stautzenberger College is a for-profit institution, and therefore does not fall within the parameters of the “fair use” exception. If you would like to reproduce by copy or otherwise any copyrighted work, you must obtain written permission from the copyright holder or purchase licensed works. You cannot simply copy the needed numbers of pages to hand out to your students. When you obtain written permission, please provide the original to the Director and retain a copy with your class materials. In all other instances, we must purchase the materials we use.
