As part of UW's comprehensive approach to alcohol, sexual assault, and relationship violence prevention and mental health education, the University of Wyoming is requiring all incoming students under the age of 23 to complete AlcoholEdu, Sexual Assault Prevention (SAP), and Mental Well-Being for Students. These are online, non-opinionated educational programs that are used on almost 2,000 campuses nationwide.
You will receive an email from UW through Vector Solutions inviting you to complete each course when the courses open.
Part 1 of AlcoholEdu, SAP, & Mental Well-Being will open Tuesday, December 12, 2023*
*IMPORTANT: Incoming students will be notified on this date with instructions to access these courses. Until then, incoming students will not have access to the courses.
Part 1 of ALL courses are due Friday, January 12, 2024 by midnight
Part 2 of ALL courses are due Friday, March 8, 2024 by midnight
Part 2 of each course will open 45 days after you complete Part 1 of each course.
If you have a registration hold on your account due to missing the below deadlines, the hold will be automatically removed after completing the full requirement.
Part 1 of all courses were due August 25, 2023
Part 2 of all courses were due October 20, 2023
Incoming students under the age of 21 are required to complete AlcoholEdu for College, Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates, and Mental Well-Being for Students.
Incoming students between the ages 21-22 are required to complete AlcoholEdu Ongoing Education, Sexual Assault Prevention Ongoing: Taking Action, and Mental Well-Being for Students.
If you miss the deadlines, a registration hold will be placed on your student account. This means you would not be able to register for next semester’s classes until the requirement is met. After a hold is placed on your account, you will still be able to access and take the courses. Holds are automatically removed once the full requirement is completed.
Note: There is a 45 day intermission between Part 1 and 2. Finishing Part 1 as soon as possible will impact your completion date for Part 2 for each course.
1. Login to your WyoWeb account by going to http://wyoweb.uwyo.edu and click "Students." When returning to the courses at a later date, you will repeat steps 1-3.
2. On the left-hand side, you will find your "Checklist" with a link to "HOPES Trainings". The link will take you to the Vector Solutions website which hosts the courses.
3. The Vector Solutions website utilizes single sign-on, meaning that your username and password are the same as your UW username and password.
4. Once you have logged in to your account, you will be taken to a dashboard with an assignment titled “Required Prevention Courses” which contains the AlcoholEdu, SAP, and Mental Well-Being courses.
PLEASE NOTE: AlcoholEdu, SAP, and Mental Well-Being are SEPARATE courses. Please ensure that you complete ALL in their entirety. You must pass each final exam with a 75% or higher to get credit for these courses. If you receive less than 75%, you will need to retake the final exam.
5. When you are complete with each course, the modules should show 100% complete. DO NOT log out until you click the "Next" button or you will have to repeat the section you have just gone through.
6. Since there are two parts for each program, the "Checklist" will not reflect a green checkmark until Part 2 is completed. Since these courses are hosted on a site outside of the UW system, there can be a delay in reflecting the changes on WyoWeb. For any questions, please contact the HOPES Program at firstname.lastname@example.org or 307-766-6776.
All incoming students under the age of 23.
If you believe you have an extenuating circumstance, please contact the HOPES program to inquire further.
If you are assigned the courses and you have 60 or more transfer credits, are over the age of 21, are a graduate student, completing your second bachelor's degree, or faculty/staff taking additional courses, please contact the HOPES Program at email@example.com or 307-766-6776 as you are exempt from taking the courses.
If you have completed AlcoholEdu, SAP, or Mental Well-Being at another institution, send verification to the HOPES Program. Acceptable materials include confirmation emails of completion from Everfi or Vector Solutions or a screenshot of your previous Everfi or Vector Solutions dashboard showing you have completed the course. If you are unable to gather this information, try contacting the person who oversees these courses at your previous institution to see if they have any records. If materials cannot be verified, you will need to retake the course.
Altogether, Part 1 will take approximately 3 - 4.5 hours to complete.
Part 2 of all courses will take approximately 15 minutes each to complete.
You may take the course in multiple sittings, but make sure to click on the "next" button after completing a section before logging out. If you do not progress to the next section first, you will have to repeat the previous section.
The AlcoholEdu course will include surveys about your personal health behaviors to help personalize your experience and measure students' alcohol-related attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are confidential; UW will only receive information about the student body as a whole and never your individual answers as a student. This is also true about SAP and Mental Well-Being.
Yes. Not only does AlcoholEdu provide general information about alcohol and other drugs, it also provides helpful information about what you can do as an active bystander. It is important that all UW community members feel equipped to look out for one another to create a safe environment. The course also provides you with essential campus resources and policies.
Our recent data from the 2022-2023 academic year suggests that students are positively impacted with 99% reporting that AlcoholEdu prepared them to “make responsible decisions about drinking.”
In regards to SAP, majority of UW students agree that SAP “helped them identify characteristics of healthy and unhealthy relationships” and 75% agree that SAP “made them more confident in their ability to intervene when they see concerning behavior.”
Lastly, we are excited to start gathering data from the Mental Well-Being course as Fall 2022 was the first semester it's been included with this requirement.
Here are a few things to try if you run into problems:
If you are accessing training from a desktop or laptop computer:
Update and restart your browser. If you have any pending updates, they may need to be completed to move forward with training.
Clear your browser’s cookies and cache, which is typically located under your browser’s history settings.
It is possible that device-specific browser extensions and/or pop-up blockers may be interfering with your training. Try accessing the training from another browser to rule out this possibility.
If you are accessing training from a mobile device:
The system is compatible with many mobile devices; however, some users may have personal configurations that prevent certain courses from loading. Additionally, some custom and policy courses are best displayed on a computer. If you are experiencing difficulty loading the training on a personal device, try accessing the courses through a laptop or desktop computer.
