Dear First Year 'Cane,

This year, as part of our comprehensive alcohol prevention program, the University of Miami is requiring each member of the first-year class to complete AlcoholEdu for College - an online, non-opinionated alcohol prevention program. Used on over 500 campuses nationwide, the course applies science-based research to educate students about alcohol and its effects. Whether you drink or not, AlcoholEdu for College will empower you to make well-informed decisions about alcohol and help you to cope with the drinking behavior of your peers.

This course will also teach you elements of healthy relationships, the importance of sexual consent, and the role of bystanders in creating safe, healthy communities.

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

AlcoholEdu for College

  • Part 1 of the course takes approximately 3 hours to complete and we recommend that you take it in multiple sittings. This part ends after Survey 2 and the Exam. You must earn a grade of 75 or higher to receive credit for the course. The deadline for finishing Part 1 is August 21, 2013.
  • About 45 Days after you complete Part 1, you will receive an email asking you to complete Part 2. The deadline to complete Part 2 is November 7, 2013.
We require every new first year University of Miami student to complete AlcoholEdu for College. Failure to do so will result in your inability to register for the 2014 spring semester.

Students transferring from other colleges/universities are also strongly encouraged to complete the online course.
