Alcohol Education Online Course

The University of Kansas is committed to your health and safety. KU, along with hundreds other higher education institutions nationwide, is taking a new approach to alcohol abuse prevention.

The University is requiring all newly-enrolled, degree seeking students on the Lawrence campus under the age of 21 as of August 1st of the academic year to complete an online alcohol education course. KU utilizes AlcoholEdu for College, an online, science-based program that provides the latest information about alcohol and its effects on the body and mind. The program is personalized to each student based on their previous alcohol education, choices regarding alcohol and gender. AlcoholEdu includes several chapters of content, interactive exercises, and assessments of alcohol-related knowledge, attitudes and behaviors.

Whether you choose to drink or not, this course will empower you to make well informed decisions about your own use of alcohol and help you better cope with the drinking behavior of your friends and peers.
