AlcoholEdu & Sexual Assault Prevention Courses

The college experience is more than academics. The AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates courses are part of UT’s comprehensive approach to health and wellness education and creating a safe campus for students. The program provides students with information to make well-informed decisions and be empowered to prevent substance misuse, sexual assault, and interpersonal violence.


The AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates courses will be assigned on December 1.

All undergraduate first-year and transfer students are required by the University of Tennessee, Knoxville to complete both courses by January 18.
