"Think About It"

Deadline: February 15 (For students starting in Spring 2024)

In an effort to foster a culture of sexual and relationship respect, all incoming degree seeking students are required to complete this online education course on sexual misconduct prevention and response at NYU in the first semester of their program.

All undergraduates students will be invited to take a second sexual respect training at the start of their third year at NYU. This second training acknowledges that students are in a different place in their journey in their third year, as compared to their first, and are viewing this important subject with a new lens given the experiences they will collect while living and growing as an NYU student.

"AlcoholEdu for College: Parts 1 and 2"

Deadline: February 15 (Part 1) and March 15 (Part 2) (For students starting in Spring 2024)

All incoming undergraduate students are required to take this two-part course—even those who have taken it at another institution, are over 21, or do not drink alcohol for personal, health, religious or other reasons—which provides basic knowledge of the effects of alcohol, potential problems, and ways to reduce risk, as well as resources to help you and others. If you have questions about this requirement, please contact alcoholmodule.support@nyu.edu.

  • You will receive an email invitation to complete the course a few weeks before the deadlines for Part 1 and Part 2.
  • It is important to complete Part 1 by the deadline so you can also complete Part 2 on time. Part 2 is due 30 days after you complete Part 1.
