Required Safety Program: AlcoholEdu & Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates (SAP-U)
At the University of Idaho, we all play a role in creating a safer and healthier campus community and supporting our Vandal family. 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, therefore, we believe it is necessary for students to complete this important online required safety program.
You may recall seeing an e-mail about this program referred to as "Think About It" - our required safety program is comprised of and now referred to as AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates (SAP-U).
All first-year, undergraduate U of I students under the age of 24 as of the first day of classes, are required to complete the required safety program.
AlcoholEdu and SAP-U each have two parts. Students will receive an e-mail invitation in their VandalMail when each part becomes available.
For students starting in Spring 2021:
- Part I will be available mid-December and is due Feb. 1, 2021
- If you don't meet this deadline you will receive an enrollment hold on your student account.
- Part II will be available 30 days after the completion of Part I
Dates and deadlines for students starting in Fall 2021 will be available in Summer 2021.

AlcoholEdu is a two-part interactive course that focuses on the impact alcohol has on student well-being, academic success and personal development. The course empowers students to make well-informed decisions about alcohol, including how to recognize and respond to an alcohol-related emergency. This program gives students the information they need to be able to make safe and informed choices about alcohol. Student feedback in the course is completely confidential.
Students must receive at least a 70% in AlcoholEdu to pass the course. Students who do not receive a 70% or higher will need to re-take AlcoholEdu.
Yes, and approximately 20% of U of I students choose not to drink. Whether you choose to drink or not, you will likely encounter alcohol at some point during your time at the University of Idaho in some way or another. It is important that all students understand the impact of alcohol on individuals as well as our Vandal family in order to foster a safe, healthy and welcoming community.
SAP-U (Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates) is an interactive two-part course that addresses the critical issues of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking - specifically on college campuses. The course encourages students to reflect on their personal values when it comes to relationships; uses scenarios from diverse perspectives to provide a relevant and inclusive experience; challenges harmful and demeaning language and attitudes; and provides guidance for supporting a friend who may have experienced some type of relationship violence. Students will also learn about campus resources and policies that help keep our campus community safer and that they can reach out to if needed.
The required safety program comprised of AlcoholEdu and SAP-U will take approximately 3-4 hours to complete, depending on the individual. Part I of each component takes approximately 1.5-2 hours and Part II of each component takes approximately 15-30 minutes. Part II for each component will be available 30 days after the completion of Part I. The entire program does not need to be completed in one sitting; students may come and go as they please. However it, is recommended to finish a section before exiting in order to save any completed work.
Please remember that AlcoholEdu and SAP-U both have two parts.
Part I will be available to students starting in the spring in mid-December and in mid-July for those starting in the fall. Part II will be available 30 days after the completion of Part I.
The course is due by the first day of classes of your first semester at U of I.
Students who don't meet the deadline for completing both AlcoholEdu and SAP-U will receive "New Student Online Education" enrollment hold.
Dean of Students staff will manually lift registration holds once a completion report is processed during business hours 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. It is recommended students complete the required safety program in a timely manner in order to not delay registration for the next semester.
