About these programs

Deadlines for Students Enrolling in Spring 2022


Must complete: All undergraduate students under the age of 21

Deadline: Part 1 – January 10, Part 2 – February 9

AlcoholEdu is a two-part online alcohol education program. All incoming students under the age of 21, including transfer students, are required to participate, even if they have completed it at another institution.

Note that Part 2 cannot be accessed until 30 days after completing Part 1.

Hazing Prevention

Must complete: All undergraduate students

Deadline: January 10

Student involvement in a variety of experiences promotes student success. When hazing is part of that experience, students can find themselves struggling with activities that compete with academics, with feelings of isolation, suffering from sleep deprivation, or subjected to abuse. This course teaches students how to recognize, prevent and report hazing. All incoming students regardless of age must complete the training to help proactively manage hazing-related risks.

Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention

Must complete: All undergraduate students

Deadline: Part 1 – January 10, Part 2 – February 9

Prescription drug abuse is a growing issue among college students, and opioid abuse is now the leading cause of accidental deaths in the United States. Now, more than ever, it is important for students to have the ability to make healthy, informed decisions when it comes to prescription medications. During this online course, students will learn about the science of addiction, understand prescriptions, helpful refusal skills, how to support a friend, and resources for additional support.

Note that Part 2 cannot be accessed until 30 days after completing Part 1.

Sexual Assault Prevention Education

Must complete: All students regardless of status (undergrad, grad, NDS, distance ed, etc.)

Deadline: January 10

NC State works to ensure an inclusive campus community of mutual respect for all of our students, faculty, and staff. The university’s efforts in creating this environment includes working proactively to keep our campus community informed and well-educated on issues involving sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and Title IX, a federal law that prohibits sex-based discrimination and harassment of students and employees. NC State is promoting awareness of these important issues by providing training to students and employees about preventing sexual harassment, sexual violence, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. Because all members of the NC State community have a part in creating this environment, as incoming students, you must complete Title IX training, which is entitled Sexual Assault Prevention for undergraduate students and adult learners through Everfi.

Why it’s important

We are committed to fostering a healthy and inclusive environment that is free from exploitation and intimidation. Through these courses we want to ensure that you have an understanding of the:

  • Risks associated with alcohol and drug use
  • Definition and consequences of hazing
  • Rise of prescription drug abuse
  • Behaviors that fall under the umbrella of sexual misconduct
