AlcoholEdu® for College is an online program designed to educate new IUPUI students on the impact of drinking as it relates to academic and personal success and help students practice safer decision making. Alcohol can impact any student, including those that don’t drink. AlcoholEdu engages all students to create a healthier campus community.

AlcoholEdu is required for all incoming undergraduate students 25 and younger. It takes most students about an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes to complete.

We know that most incoming IUPUI students are not high-risk drinkers - in fact, the vast majority of students like you are not regular drinkers. So why require an alcohol education course for everyone? AlcoholEdu® for College helps you watch out for your friends and roommates, it covers the warning signs and symptoms of alcohol poisoning, it brings you up to speed on campus policies about alcohol, and prompts you to think about what you would do in different social situations.

AlcoholEdu® for College is sometimes confused with Haven, however, these are actually two different courses. Some incoming students will need to complete both. Follow this link for more information about Haven.

AlcoholEdu screenshotStudents will access AlcoholEdu using their IUPUI username and passphrase through ONE.IU ( Course progress is tracked by student ID, but all answers are kept confidential.

The course has two parts, and is not considered complete until both parts are finished. The course launches on July 25, at which point you will receive an email with instructions for logging in. This is not a "one size fits all" lecture or slide show, this interactive course uses adaptive pathways to tailor the content based on your responses. AlcoholEdu takes your perspectives into account to deliver the most relevant content possible.
