Haven and AlcoholEdu
For Students Arriving Spring 2018
As part of our comprehensive health and safety program, USU expects all incoming students – including first-year students, transfer students and graduate students – to complete online health and safety courses before arriving on campus. These courses will empower students to make informed decisions about issues that affect our USU community.
Complete Early to Win
In order to encourage early completion of these courses, USU is providing a $1,000 education incentive to a randomly drawn winner. The earlier you complete, the greater your chance of winning. Here’s how it works:
- Complete Part 1 of your required courses before Dec. 31, 2017 – Your name will be entered in the drawing for the $1,000 education incentive three times.
- Complete Part 1 between Jan. 1-8, 2018 – Your name will be entered twice.
- Complete Part 1 between Jan. 9-29, 2018 – Your name will be entered once.
- Complete Part 1 between Jan. 30 and March, 22, 2018 – Avoid a registration hold.
Key Dates to Remember

Students who have not completed Part 1 of required online health and safety course(s) will receive a hold on their account, preventing them from registering for future classes.
Complete the course immediately. You will still be able to access and take the course after this time, but it will take 24-48 hours for your hold to be removed once you have completed the required course(s).
To begin the online courses, you will need one EverFi Higher Education Account to access the course(s) from your dashboard.

USU can only see accounts completed by students who registered with a USU A-number and cannot see accounts from another institution. These courses also include USU resources and information that you should be aware of. Please plan to take the courses again.
The courses include surveys about your personal health behaviors to help personalize your experience and measure students' attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are confidential. USU will only receive information about the student body as a whole and never your individual answers as a student.
- You may take the course in multiple sittings, but make sure to click on the “next” button after completing a section before clicking “exit.” If you do not progress to the next section first, you will have to repeat the previous section.
- If you experience technical problems, click the “help” button to access the 24/7 help center from Everfi.
- 30 days after completing Part 1 of the course(s) you’ll receive and invitation to complete Part 2, which includes a follow-up survey.

About Haven and Haven Plus
Haven is an online sexual violence awareness and prevention course. USU provides Haven as part of a federal mandate under the Campus SaVe Act for all students to learn about sexual violence. These regulations are enforced by the U.S. Department of Education.
One in five college women will experience some form of non-consensual sexual activity by graduation. Additionally, one in 71 men will be raped at some point in their lives.
The widespread impact of sexual violence on students presents an urgent and pressing challenge for our nation’s campuses. Haven – Understanding Sexual Assault addresses the critical issues of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking, which impact countless college students across the country.
Haven uses a population-level approach to educate all students on the issues associated with sexual assault and relationship violence, taking into account their unique perspectives and experiences, providing:
- Key definitions and statistics
- Reflective and personalized content
- Bystander skill and confidence-building strategies
- Campus-specific policies, procedures and resources
- Rich data summaries to inform future programming
AlcoholEdu for College is an educational online course about alcohol and other drug safety. It’s completely confidential and individual student responses about alcohol and other drug behavior are not accessible by USU or any other party. The course helps students develop healthy lifestyle habits that will benefit them the rest of their lives.
A federally funded, 30-campus randomized control trial found that AlcoholEdu reduces high-risk drinking and alcohol-related harms among college students. The program motivates behavior change by:
- Resetting unrealistic expectations about the effects of alcohol
- Linking choices about drinking to academic and personal success
- Helping students practice safer decision-making
- Engaging students to create a healthier campus community
