AlcoholEdu is a confidential, online substance education course.  The course uses science-based research to educate students about alcohol and its effects. Whether the student drinks or not, the course will help them make informed decisions about alcohol and better deal with drinking behavior that may occur around them. AlcoholEdu is used by more than 500 college and university campuses nationwide.

The course consists of two parts, both of which must be completed to satisfy this requirement. Campus and AlcoholEdu staff will never see individual student surveys or responses. Students will be emailed about the program once activated and are provided information during their summer advising conferences.

 

Part 1
This part will take approximately 1.5 hours to complete. It includes:
  • A pre-survey;
  • A pre-test of your alcohol knowledge;
  • The educational course;
  • An exam, which the student must pass with a score of at least 70%; and a post-survey. Students may access Part 1 of the course beginning July 18, 2016.
  • The deadline for completing Part 1 is August 15, 2016.
  • If students do not complete Part 1 by the deadline, an academic hold will be placed on their account until it is completed.

 

Part 2
After students arrive on campus, they will receive an email with instructions for completing Part 2 of the course. This Part will take about 20 minutes to complete and includes:
  • Updated alcohol information;
  • A brief video;
  • Students cannot complete part 2 with 45 days of the completion of Part One.
  • If Part 2 is not completed by October 17, 2016, an academic hold will be placed on your account.

The rationale for using these holds is compliance for data collection. This program and holds have been approved by the Provost, VP for Student Affairs and in partnership with the Registrar. If you have a student who is having an immediate registration issue or concerns about the survey, please contact our AOD Prevention Coordinator
