All new students must complete certain health and safety courses, including AlcoholEdu (designed to reduce at-risk drinking behavior) and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates and Graduates (which help promote healthy behaviors and prevent sexual assault and relationship violence). You take these courses online, starting before you arrive at UB.
Each course has a Part 1 and a Part 2. You take Part 1 before your first semester starts. After at least 40 days take Part 2.
Use a computer with internet access (any major web browser released within the previous two years) and audio capabilities. Cell phones and smartphones cannot be used to take these courses.
All survey responses are strictly confidential. UB will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will never see individual students’ answers.

You may be interested in speaking with your student about the topics covered in the AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention courses. As much as you believe your students do not hear your opinions on these topics, they do value your judgment, advice and the expectation that you have for them.
Resources for Parents of College Students provides information to help have meaningful and productive conversations that may impact your student’s life.
When you’re taking the course, you can click on the “Technical Help” button located on every screen, or view our troubleshooting guide.
Failure to complete your AlcoholEdu or Sexual Assault Prevention requirements, may result in a hold on your account. You can review your holds at the HUB Student Center via MyUB.
Submit the help form below to remove the hold on your account. (If you completed the course at another institution, you will need to provide documentation.)
