Requirements and Deadlines for New Students

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.

New Vendor for Campus Safety Programs

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. 

Responses are Confidential

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.

Required Courses

There are three separate tracks that correlate to your age and student status. Please follow the deadlines for the first semester that you will be entering the university as a new student. You will be emailed your required course(s) directly to your UB email, along with the instructions when the course(s) become available for you to complete.
