As an incoming first-year or transfer student, you’re required to complete two educational modules—AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates—before arriving on campus.

What is AlcoholEdu?

AlcoholEdu is a comprehensive, Web-based educational module that provides critical information about alcohol, its effects on the developing brain and body, and how it may play a role in your college experience. Its interactive platform is designed to help you make well-informed decisions about alcohol and to assist you in dealing with the drinking behavior of your peers, whether or not you personally choose to drink. 

What is Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates?

Springfield College is committed to the prevention of all forms of interpersonal violence, and the Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates module is designed to address the critical issues of sexual assault, sexual harassment, relationship violence, and stalking.
