Take the Courses: Things to Know

At the University of Michigan, we are committed to your personal and professional development and that of your peers – in the classroom and the community. To help you and all our new students transition to U-M and reduce your risk for personal harm while you are a member of this community, we have joined many top schools in the country in requiring AlcoholEdu for College, Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates, and Sexual Assault Prevention Ongoing Education as important components of our alcohol prevention initiatives and the education and support services related to sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, sexual harassment, and stalking.

What are AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates?

AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates are online education courses for all incoming students. They are interactive, online courses designed to inform students about alcohol and sexual assault issues. The confidential, research-based courses provide students with accurate information in a non-judgmental tone and encourages students to consider their own decisions and those of their peers.

BOTH courses AND course modules must be completed to fulfill this requirement.
