Alcohol Edu


AlcoholEdu is an online course which all incoming students at the University of Dayton are required to complete. Whether students drink alcohol or not, the course will educate them on the topic of drinking and its effect on themselves and others. 

There are two parts to this course and you must do both parts to be considered complete. You will need to complete Part I (takes about 60-75 minutes to complete).  Approximately 45 days after completing Part I, you will receive an automated email asking you to complete the Part II.  At this time, you will need to login again to complete Part II (takes about 15 minutes to complete).

Only after you’ve finished Part I with a passing grade of 80% or better and finished Part II, have you completed the program.

Why are students required to take the course?

AlcoholEdu is one aspect of a strategic plan to prevent high-risk drinking, educate students on the effects that alcohol has on the body, and provide resources for students with alcohol problems.  The surveys contained in AlcoholEdu also help us track changes in students’ beliefs and behaviors surrounding alcohol.  Therefore, we can intentionally provide the necessary interventions and policies in our effort to prevent high-risk drinking on campus.

How do I login?

To take AlcoholEdu, you will need a computer with Internet access and audio capabilities. Log into Porches, click on Front Porch, you will see AlcoholEdu listed in your To-Do List.

Are there penalties for not completing this mandatory course?

Yes.  Failure to complete all sections of the AlcoholEdu course, with a passing grade, will result in a hold being placed on the student’s account that make them unable to register for classes. You must complete AlcoholEdu for the hold to be removed.

Who will see my answers?

All survey responses are confidential.  The University of Dayton will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will NEVER see any individual student answers.
