AlcoholEdu for College and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates Courses

New experiences are ahead of you...

We take every part of the Saint Mary's College experience very seriously, and we have implemented a comprehensive alcohol education and sexual assault prevention program to help students make the safest, healthiest decisions possible. 

These courses, called AlcoholEdu for College and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates, will bring light to some of the experiences often found on a college campus and we believe the successful completion of these two courses will help reduce risky behavior and help you to make educated and responsible choices.

All incoming students (first year and transfer students) are required to complete the AlcoholEdu for College and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates online courses BEFORE arriving to campus to prevent any academic holds. 

AlcoholEdu for College and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates are web-based alcohol and sexual assault education programs utilizing a harm reduction approach. The information in the programs focuses on prevention and education which is why the courses are required of students prior to arriving on campus.

The programs use an interactive and situation based approach to educate students about the impact of alcohol on the mind and body and the importance of understanding consent for sexual assault prevention purposes. These flash-based courses provide a rich experience that will help to promote good decision making for all of our students. Whether or not you drink alcohol, AlcoholEdu for College will empower students to make well-informed decisions about alcohol and how to better cope with the drinking behavior of peers.

Every incoming student (including transfer students) has been assigned the AlcoholEdu for College and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates courses and are required to complete them by August 15, 2019. Information for accessing the courses has been sent to your SMC email. If you did not receive the email, you can access the course at this link.
