Instructions for Sanctioned Students

Dear Student,

As part of your sanction for violating the campus alcohol policy, you have been asked to complete the AlcoholEdu program. This online, science-based course is designed to teach you about the effects of alcohol on the body and mind, and to assist you in making safer and healthier decisions so you can avoid trouble in the future.

The course has two sections, both of which must be completed to fulfill this requirement:

  1. Part 1 of the course takes roughly 3 hours to complete, and we recommend that you take it in multiple sittings. You must earn the specified grade or higher to pass and receive credit for the course. See the Conduct Administrator for the deadline for complete Part 1 of the course.

  2. About one month after you complete Part 1, you will receive an e-mail asking you to complete Part 2, which takes about 15 minutes. See the Conduct Administrator for the deadline for complete Part 2 of the course.

MODULE 1:
Knowing the Facts

MODULE 2:
Planning Your Decisions

MODULE 3:

BREAK: 30-60 days

MODULE 4:

Please note that the course may include surveys that measure students' alcohol-related attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are strictly confidential; the school will only receive information about the student body as whole and will never see individual students' answers. You can feel confident that providing truthful answers — no matter what they are — will not put you at any risk for repercussions.
