3. Complete the AlcoholEdu for College online course.
AlcoholEdu for College is an online prevention program that uses science based-research to educate students. This non-opinionated course aims not to tell you what to think, but to help you make good decisions for yourself as well as dealing with the behaviors of your peers.
All first-year students that have attended orientation will receive an email the week of July 17th with instructions on how to complete the online survey. Part 1 of the survey will take approximately 1.5 – 2 hours to complete. The survey can be completed in multiple sittings. Once you have completed Part 2 of the survey, you have officially completed the program.
Students completing the program will be able to utilize the Razorback Medical Attention & Reporting Exemption Policy through the Office of Student Standards and Conduct.
