Alcohol misuse  doesn’t just put college students' safety and health at risk, but greatly threatens the ability of colleges and universities to achieve their missions. And while today’s students are less likely to drink in high risk ways, alcohol and other drugs continue to negatively impact student well-being.  

AlcoholEdu® is an interactive online program that uses the latest evidence-based prevention methods to create a highly engaging learning experience, inspiring students to make healthier decisions related to alcohol, cannabis, e-cigarettes, and other drugs. It is used by 36% of all incoming first years at four-year institutions and is the only alcohol awareness and drinking prevention program proven to reduce negative alcohol-related consequences among students.


  • Bite sized training sessions provide information about alcohol and other drugs as well as campus policies as required by EDGAR Part 86
  • Informs students about the emotional and physical effects of alcohol, cannabis, and e-cigarette use 
  • Flexible learning modules teach bystander intervention techniques
