Mandatory Online Training for Undergrads

Dear USC Undergraduate Student:

Your health, wellness and safety are essential to your success as a student at the University of Southern California. On the MyUSC website, you will find three online learning modules designed to provide knowledge and skills on the critical topics of alcohol use, sexual consent, and campus safety.

These three courses will be available on myUSC beginning July 24, 2017.

You must complete the courses by the deadlines indicated below. A hold will be placed on your spring 2018 semester registration if you do not complete the required courses by those dates.

1. AlcoholEdu for College
Whether or not you decide to drink alcohol while you are at USC, AlcoholEdu for College will assist you in making well-informed decisions and responding to the possible drinking-related behavior of your peers. Please note that you are required to complete USC’s AlcoholEdu for College and pass the final exam even if you have done so at another institution.

DEADLINE FOR PART ONE: August 16, 2017
DEADLINE FOR PART TWO: October 3, 2017 

2. Think About It
Think About It is an online course that encourages you to reflect critically on such topics as healthy relationships, consent, dating violence, sexual assault, bystander intervention, and university resources and reporting options available through the university’s administrative process and through local law enforcement.

DEADLINE: October 3, 2017

3. On The Safe Side
This interactive training, designed by the USC Game Innovation Lab, will give you tips to help you make safe choices at USC and beyond. The training follows Ty, an incoming USC student, who faces some common situations where making safe choices is critical. These scenarios are modeled after real situations that students have encountered. Learn to be aware of your surroundings in a lovingly crafted virtual version of the USC campus.
