All incoming first year students are expected to complete Part 1 of the confidential online module AlcoholEdu (Chapters 1-3, the two surveys and two knowledge tests) prior to arriving on campus in August.

Any student, including upper class or graduate/professional students, staff, or faculty member with an active ONYEN login who is interested in taking AlcoholEdu may also access it from the link in the instructions below. Please make sure to select the appropriate group you belong to when logging into the Everfi page.

Current students who have been referred to complete AlcoholEdu for Sanctions by the Office of Student Conduct may link to AlcoholEdu for Sanctions from their page.

As you may know, alcohol can be a significant issue in the lives of college students – from decisions on whether you should drink if offered it, to the negative second hand impacts that can come from someone else’s consumption. In fact, it is likely that whether or not you choose to drink, you will eventually know someone who does.  We want every student joining the Carolina community to have an appropriate and accurate understanding of alcohol and its associated risks, including legal, judicial and health impacts.  UNC Chapel Hill supports efforts to prevent underage alcohol use, high-risk drinking and alcohol abuse on our campus, and has joined with many top Universities in implementing AlcoholEdu as a part of our alcohol education and abuse prevention initiatives.

As noted above, this online module – including the two surveys we ask you to complete as part of it – is completely confidential.  No response you include in the survey will ever be connected back to you personally.  The Everfi company that provides AlcoholEdu will compile all anonymous answers from each student into an aggregate data report for our Student Wellness staff to use in measuring the effectiveness of the course, and in developing additional education resources and programming for campus.  However, if you would still prefer not to answer some questions on the anonymous survey, you can choose to leave them blank and that will not impact your completed status for the overall module.
