AlcoholEdu Program Directions for Citadel Freshmen:

As part of our comprehensive Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program, The Citadel expects each member of the incoming Fourth Class to complete AlcoholEdu for College – an online, objective, science-based course taken by hundreds of thousands of students each year. Whether you drink or not, AlcoholEdu will empower you to make well-informed decisions about alcohol and help you better cope with the drinking behavior of your peers.

The course, which becomes available online on 8 July 2013, has two sections, both of which must be completed to fulfill this requirement:

  • Part 1 of the course takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete, and we recommend that you take it in multiple sittings. This part ends after Survey 2 and the Exam. You must earn a grade of 80% or higher to pass and receive credit for the course. The deadline for finishing Part 1 is 17 Aug 2013.

  • About two weeks after you complete Part 1, you will receive an email asking you to complete Part 2. The deadline to complete Part 2 is 45 days after school begins.

    Please note that the course includes three surveys that measure students’ alcohol-related attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are strictly confidential; the school will only receive information about the student body as whole and will never see individual students’ answers.

The course is REQUIRED for each incoming cadet to take before they arrive for their fourth-class training. Due to the limited time you have available after your arrival, Part 1 of the course must be completed before Matriculation. More importantly, the course has been found to provide new college students with a comprehensive understanding of the risks of underage drinking, binge drinking, and illegal drug use.

To take AlcoholEdu, you will need a computer with Internet access and audio capabilities. If you do not have a computer, you can use your local library or other source for logging into the online course.
