Think About It

A University of Idaho initiative to help new students examine the interconnected issues of substance abuse, sexual violence, and healthy relationships through a variety of interactive, realistic scenarios and guided self-reflection. 


The first semester on any college campus presents risks for new students when it comes to substance abuse and sexual assault. Knowing how to navigate challenging situations is key to student success and safety, and that is why the University of Idaho is launching Think About It, a cutting-edge, comprehensive, online orientation program that educates and informs through a format that was created with students for students.

Early Completion Incentives:

Students who complete the program by midnight on Sunday, August 24 (the day before classes begin), will receive a limited-edition, Vandal t-shirt and be entered to win an iPad mini, iPod Touch, and two iPod Nanos. Students who complete before September 7 will still be entered to win the Apple devices.


Fall 2014:

All new, full-time undergraduate UI students under age 24 on the Moscow-campus are required to complete the program by November 2, 2014.

Not meeting this deadline will result in students receiving an "New Student Online Education" enrollment hold. This means that students will not be able to perform enrollment activities, including course registration, until they have completed Think About It. Staff in the Office of the Dean of Students will manually lift holds based on completion reports run only during business hours.  For example, if you finish the program at 10 p.m. on Friday, November 7.  The staff in the Office of the Dean of Students will remove your hold the next business day, which is Monday, November 10. Please plan accordingly so that you can register for classes.
