UC Mandatory Sexual Violence Prevention Training for Incoming Students

At the University of California, Riverside (UCR), we know how important it is for all students to have a safe and healthy community. As a part of UCR’s commitment to create a healthy environment that is safe, mutually respectful, and free from harassment and violence, including sexual violence, all new first-year and transfer students are expected to complete mandatory online Sexual Violence, Sexual Harassment and Alcohol Education training courses by Friday, October 21, 2022. Graduate students are required to complete the Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment course.

Training Requirements – Part 1 due Friday, October 21, 2022

New first-year, transfer and graduate students must complete their mandatory assigned online education modules by Friday, October 21, 2022 in order to avoid having a registration hold placed on their account. Holds that are placed will not be removed until the requirement is satisfied. Also keep in mind that the removal of holds is not automatic and may take several days, so we recommend completing the training requirement as soon as possible so that your course registration is not impacted.

Each course takes about two hours to complete, and is best not viewed on a mobile device. You can bookmark your place to pause trainings and come back to them later. 

Part 2, a shorter follow up module for each course, also needs to be completed:

  • Part 2 of the Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment training will be due February 26.
  • Part 2 of the AlcoholEdu module will be available 30 days after Part 1, and will be due December 16, 2022.
