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. 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, Inclusion and Belonging, Staying Safe; and the live session, Trojans Respect Consent (in-person on Zoom) workshop.

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 students in Fall 2021:

Undergraduate Students

Graduate Students

*Incoming students enrolled in an online graduate degree program are not required to complete the Staying Safe education course.


Additionally, for second-year undergraduate students, a follow-up workshop, “Healthy Relationships” (in-person, on Zoom) is required for completion.

Learn about completing the (in-person, on Zoom) workshops:

Trojans Respect Consent (first-year students) and Healthy Relationships (second-year students).


Noncompliance with these requirements can result in a registration hold for the following semester.

All of these learning opportunities are designed to help you with:

  • 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

Access to the online self-paced modules are available in MyUSC through TrojanLearn. Schedule your Trojans Respect Consent workshop in MySHR. Your completion of these prevention education requirements creates a common knowledge and shared expectation for our campus communities.

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:

  • Mental Well-being for Students: This self-paced module is highly recommended for all USC students. Become familiar with ways to manage stress, anxiety, and other common experiences in academic life. Log in through TrojanLearn.
  • Bystander Intervention Training: Trojans Act Now! is a 90-minute workshop that empowers students to intervene when they witness a situation that may lead to gender-and power-based harm, including sexual harassment, stalking, dating violence, and sexual assault. Contact rsvptac@usc.edu or call 213-740-9355 (WELL).
  • Opioid Education: Any student audiences interested in information on opioid prevalence and overdose prevention (through the emergency reversal drug, naloxone, brand name Narcan) in the U.S., can contact studenthealth@usc.edu.

Thank you for your support in maintaining a safe, healthy, and supportive community for USC as we live, work, and learn all over the world.
