Overview

Cornell College has partnered with EverFi, whose mission is to help students address critical life skills such as alcohol abuse prevention, sexual assault prevention and financial literacy, in high schools and higher education institutions across the country. Each year over 1/2 million students complete these courses.

As part of our comprehensive prevention program and new student orientation, we expect all new and transfer students to complete AlcoholEdu. This online course will empower students to make well-informed decisions about issues that affect their college years and beyond.

Timeline

AlcoholEdu consists of two parts.

  • Part 1 opens early August (generally during the first week) and must be completed before students can check into their residence hall in the fall.
  • Part 2 opens 4-5 weeks after the student completes Part 1 and must be completed by a specified date (typically early November).

For both parts, students will receive an e-mail at their Cornell College account instructing them to take the course.

Log in to AlcoholEdu

Students can log in to AlcoholEdu only during the above time frame.

  • Log in to AlcoholEdu (a current Cornell College username and password will be required and then students will see a link that will take them directly to the online course)

About the online program

The course will ask questions about students' knowledge of and experience with alcohol. All survey responses are confidential; Cornell College cannot see an individual student's responses. We can only see who has completed the course and then will receive information about the student body as a whole.

Also note the following:

  • All participants are required to achieve at least a 75% passing score on Part 1; students who do not achieve that minimum will be required to retake the course.
  • Participants will need internet access (using any major web browser released/updated within the past two years) and audio capabilities.
  • Participants may take the course in multiple sittings (the system will automatically save a student's progress and then the student can return to this page and follow the link to re-enter the program, provided the return visit fits within the timeline listed above).
  • Technical support is available at any time and can be accessed from the "Help" link within the course.
