Prevention Education Requirements

USC is dedicated to creating a campus culture driven by student well-being and setting you up for greater success both as a student and as a member of the Trojan Family.

This is supported by a learning environment that fosters safe and healthy relationships among our students in online and on-campus settings. Safe and healthy relationships are created when we develop personal skills related to complex aspects of student life. For both graduate and undergraduate students at USC, one of the ways we do this is to require the completion of prevention education through the following online self-paced modules: AlcoholEdu for College, Sexual Assault Prevention, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion; Staying Safe; and the live sessions, Consent and Healthy Relationships (CHR) Part 1, 2, & 3 (in-person on Zoom) workshop for incoming students.

Continuing graduate and undergraduate students are required to complete annual Sexual Assault Prevention training, and undergraduates must complete additional live sessions on consent and healthy relationships during their time at USC.

USC also offers an online module called Mental Well-being for Students that we encourage all students to take and become familiar with as a way to manage stress, anxiety, and other common experiences in academic life.

Below are the prevention education offerings and deadlines for incoming and continuing students in Fall 2022. All prevention education requirements are also listed here:

Access to the online self-paced modules are available in MyUSC through TrojanLearn. Your completion of all prevention education requirements creates a common knowledge and shared expectation for our campus communities.

Noncompliance with these requirements will result in a registration hold for the following semester and/or the ability to add classes for the current semester.

  • Supporting your peers and yourself when faced with tough situations
  • Reflecting on your knowledge, attitudes, and experiences related to these issues
  • Developing critical skills to make thoughtful choices inside and outside the classroom

Recommended Education & Workshops

USC Student Health also offers several voluntary prevention education trainings and workshops for students. We encourage students to consider the following modules and workshops:
