All new students—grad, undergrad, nontraditional, international, 100% online, and all others—are required to complete these online health and safety trainings.
Looking for training and information? UB’s Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) offers online training specifically for you.
If you are attending a new student orientation this summer, you will receive a separate e-mail regarding your course(s) timeline after you complete your two-day session.
New students are required to take one or two health and safety courses, depending on your age and student status. Each course has a Part One and a Part Two. Part One will be emailed directly to your UB email address with all of the instructions you need to complete the course(s). Part Two will be sent to you 40 days after you complete Part One.
Use a computer with Internet access, and any major web browser released within the last two years. You will also need audio capabilities. The course is also accessible for students who are hearing or visually impaired, please contact us if you need assistance.
UB has partnered with Vector Solutions and the Campus Prevention Network to provide trainings that will help us all be informed on topics vital to achieving our goal. These trainings, in addition to being highly interactive and engaging, are based in research around the best practices for healthy communities.
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. If the course content is troubling to you, please reach out to our office for support.

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 the following links.
