AlcoholEdu® for College


California State University, Chico has a commitment to the safety, health and wellness of our campus community.  As part of our alcohol and drug prevention program, each new student is required to complete the mandatory AlcoholEdu® for College on-line program.  AlcoholEdu® for College is a two-part, online evidence-based, non-judgmental prevention, and education program. 

AlcoholEdu® is a separate requirement than the Title IX Not Anymore Training, which all students are required to complete as well.

Used on more than 550 campuses nationwide, AlcoholEdu uses science-based research to educate students about alcohol and its effects. Whether you drink or not, AlcoholEdu® for College will empower you to make well-informed decisions about alcohol and help you better cope with the drinking behaviors of your peers.  Regardless of your views about alcohol, we want you to have an understanding of the effects and risks that go along with drinking.


Holds are placed when Part 1 of AlcoholEdu® has not been completed by the stated deadline.  Holds are automatically lifted after a student has completed the program with a score of 70% or higher.  If you have completed the program with a score of 70% or higher and your hold is not lifted within the next hour, please give our office a call and we can assist you.
