St. Charles Community College makes the campus as accessible as possible to district residents by offering meeting space when available and by providing many cultural opportunities through the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building and theater.
In addition, the campus is the site of many seminars, workshops and outdoor activities that are open for participation by the general public.
Users of facilities will be required to comply with all college policies and any applicable statutory regulations.

As a commuter college, the institution recognizes the necessity for adequate traffic control, safety and parking facilities. The SCC director of public safety is responsible for the development and enforcement of college traffic control procedures and for the general safety of the campus. Citations may be issued for violations of regulations. The following should be observed:
Students, faculty and staff with physical disabilities may apply for temporary or permanently disabled status through the Missouri Department of Revenue License Bureau. Only state-issued disabled hang tags and license plates will be recognized. A Disabled Placard (a small sign indicating information about the vehicle operator) is a removable windshield placard that is to be hung from the rearview mirror of a parked vehicle in order to park in disabled parking spaces. The placard must be used only when a physically disabled person is the occupant of the motor vehicle at the time of parking or when the physically disabled person is being dropped off or picked up. Displaying a Disabled Placard and parking in a disabled parking space by a person not transporting the individual to whom the placard was issued will result in a parking ticket with a $50 to $300 fine.
Improper or reckless driving violations may result in a hearing before the dean of student success. All citations must be paid at the Cashier’s Office within 10 school days. A copy of the citation must accompany a check or money order payable to SCC and mailed to Cashier, SCC, 4601 Mid Rivers Mall Drive, Cottleville, Mo. 63376.
Officers from DPS/Campus Police may issue warnings, SCC Campus traffic tickets or municipal and state traffic tickets. Municipal traffic tickets are issued under the authority of the City of Cottleville municipal court and State traffic tickets are issued under the authority of the St. Charles County circuit court, traffic division. Fines for violations issued through a City or State court system are set by those jurisdictions.
Any vehicle parked and left unattended in an unauthorized location will be towed at the owner’s expense. If your vehicle is inoperable, contact Public Safety to avoid a ticket or towing. Unpaid citations must be paid by the end of the school term or grades will be withheld and you will not be permitted to enroll in any ensuing term.
Fines and towing charges are the responsibility of the person to whom the vehicle is registered.
A Student Traffic Court meets as needed to review student parking ticket appeals. Students may request a form to appeal in the Student Activities Office in Room 102 in the College Center.
For details about parking, read the Campus Parking Regulations brochure.
See board policy 305 – Motor Vehicle Regulations.

Skateboards, rollerblades and bicycles are not permitted on the walking trail, except on the Dardenne Greenway Trail where rollerblading, bicycle and the use of golf carts are permitted.
