As of Monday, July 15, 2013, the AlcoholEdu program is accessible to students and ready to complete. Below is information for you to reference if you or any students whom you encounter have any questions.
- The completion of AlcoholEdu is required for students who meet all of the following criteria:
- Non-transfer freshmen
- U.S. citizens or resident
- Younger than 21 years of age
- Recent high school graduates who acquired college credits while in high school are not considered transfer students and must still complete the program.
- This year, those with a U.S. resident status must complete the program.
- The Part One deadline is Monday, August 19th. It can take roughly 2 to 3 hours.
- To receive credit, students must successfully complete the program’s final exam with a minimum score of 75%.
- Forty-five (45) days after the successful completion of Part One, students will receive an email informing them that they are able to complete Part Two.
- The Part Two deadline is Monday, October 21st. It will take 15 to 30 minutes.
- Failure to complete AlcoholEdu by the deadline will result in an academic (AlcoholEdu) hold on student registration.
Please note that for the past three years, we have found the following trends pertaining to student success and retention in relationship to completion rates in AlcoholEdu:
- Of the UK students who did not return for the following Spring semester, an average of over 19% failed to complete AlcoholEdu by the August deadline.
- Of the UK students who were on academic probation for the following Spring semester, an additional average of 22% did not complete AlcoholEdu by the August deadline.
- The longer it takes in the fall semester for a student to complete AlcoholEdu, the greater the likelihood that student will not return for the Spring semester.
