Alcohol Edu for Freshman

 

ATTENTION: This program is to be completed by incoming UW freshmen only!

If you recently received a ticket or warning for an alcohol-related violation and were referred to the AWARE program you must report to University Counseling Center in 341 Knight Hall in order to complete preliminary paperwork and to get instructions on how to proceed through the program. This program is for incoming freshman only and does not count toward an alcohol-related violation.

Explanation of the program: As part of our comprehensive approach to alcohol, sexual assault, and relationship violence prevention education, the University of Wyoming is requiring all freshmen to complete Alcohol Edu and Haven.  These are online, non-opinionated educational programs that are used on more than 500 campuses nationwide.  Whether you drink or not, Alcohol Edu will empower you to make well-informed decisions about alcohol and will help you to reflect on and consider college drinking related issues.  Haven will provide you with information about healthy relationships, the importance of consent, how to help a friend, and the many ways you can help create the safe, positive campus you want to be a part of.

Requirements:  The courses have two sections, both of which must be completed to fulfill this requirement: 

Part 1 of the course becomes available on August 1, 2014 and takes approximately 3 hours to complete, and we recommend that you take it in multiple sittings. You must earn a grade of 75% or higher to pass and receive credit for the course. The deadline for finishing Part 1 of the course is Tuesday, September 2, 2014 by midnight.

About 45 days after you complete the Part 1, you will receive an email asking you to complete Part 2. The deadline to complete Part 2 is Monday, November 3, 2014 by midnight.

Please note that failure to complete Alcohol Edu and Haven with a passing grade by the specified deadlines will result in your registration time being bumped to the last day of registration. If you complete AlcoholEdu and Haven by the deadlines, you will be entered into a raffle for prizes. 

We recognize that talking about sexual violence can be difficult, and want to acknowledge that some of you may have had personal experiences with sexual assault or relationship violence.  If taking this course is difficult or triggering for you, please know there are resources on campus to support you, even prior to your arrival to campus this fall.  If you are a survivor and need to talk after taking the course, please contact the STOP Violence Program at 307-766-3434 or email stopviolence@uwyo.edu.

For any questions related to fulfilling this requirement, please contact the AWARE program at aware@uwyo.edu.

For any questions related to technical problems with Alcohol Edu or Haven, call the Online Technical Support Center at 1-866-384-9062.  They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Troubleshooting: A few students have reported technical difficulties.  Here are a few things to try if you run into problems:

  • Try the program in a different browser (if you are using Internet Explorer, try Firefox, Chrome, or Safari instead).
  • Try clearing the cache.
  • Make sure you are not running anything else on your computer like music, video streaming, instant messaging, at the same time you are taking Alcohol EDU.
  • Try a wired internet connection or try a different internet connection.
  • Try a different computer (i.e. school, library, or friend)
  • If you cannot see the "NEXT" button, try zooming out.  On a PC: Control + 0.  On a Mac: Command + 0.
  • Try watching the Haven video on your phone or tablet and then switch back to your computer to finish the course (this has proven especially helpful in the case of slow internet connections, limited bandwidth, or congested wireless connections.)
  • Try logging out of Wyoweb and logging back into Wyoweb a little bit later to see if that might help.  There are many students across the country that are using Alcohol EDU so it’s possible that they system is a little bogged down if there is a lot of traffic at that moment.
  • Contact the Alcohol EDU/Haven Technical Support Help Line at 866-384-9062 if you still can’t get it to work.
