Student Information

Dear Student,

Welcome to Tarleton!  We are excited to offer you AlcoholEdu.  This is a science-based course taken by thousands of students on over 500 campuses nationwide every year. The course aims not to preach but to educate you about alcohol and its effects on the mind and body.

As part of our comprehensive alcohol prevention program, Tarleton requires all first-year students to complete AlcoholEdu. Whether you drink or not, AlcoholEdu will empower you to make well-informed decisions about alcohol and to better cope with the drinking behavior of your peers. Our goal is to help you succeed and meet your academic goals.

Completing AlcoholEdu is a university requirement for all first time freshmen (including those with less than 30 transfer hours).

The course has two sections, both of which must be completed to fulfill this requirement.

The first part of the course takes about 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 hours to complete, and we recommend that you take it in multiple sittings.  This section ends with an Exam. You will need to earn a grade of 75% or higher to pass and receive credit for the course.

Part 1 deadline is January 26, 2014.

About 45 days after you complete Part 1, you will receive an email asking you to complete Part 2, which takes only about 15 minutes.

Please note that the course includes three surveys that measure students’ alcohol-related attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are strictly confidential; Tarleton will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will never see individual students’ answers.  You can feel confident that providing truthful answers – no matter what they are – will not put you at any risk for repercussions.

To take AlcoholEdu, you will need a computer with Internet access and audio capabilities.
