AlcoholEdu Questions

AlcoholEdu is an interactive, online program designed to inform students about how alcohol affects the body, mind, perceptions, and behaviors. This research-based course provides students with accurate information in a non-judgmental tone and provides personalized feedback that encourages students to consider their own drinking decisions and those of their peers.

Whether or not a student drinks alcohol, the program will empower them to make well-informed decisions about alcohol, link their choices about drinking or not drinking to academic and personal success, and help them better cope with the drinking behavior of their peers.

The course is composed of surveys, knowledge tests, and alcohol-related information. In Part 1, students will complete Chapters 1-3, two surveys, and two knowledge tests. On October 1, 2017, students will receive a link via email to complete Part 2, which consists of the final chapter and survey.

  • how media, family, & social expectations shape ideas & behaviors
  • body/health factors, including blood alcohol concentration (BAC)
  • potential risks associated with problem drinking, such as violence and drinking and driving
  • impact of alcohol on academic performance and relationships
  • how to make healthy choices and deal with peer pressure
  • helpful resources that students can access at any time, such as a BAC calculator & reference guides about alcohol & other drugs

AlcoholEdu delivers an effective means for helping students practice safe and healthy choices. It also provides students with a common baseline of knowledge and awareness of alcohol issues, and strengthens a shared set of campus norms and expectations around alcohol use.

All incoming first-year and transfer students must complete the program.

Part 1 of the online program takes approximately 1.5 to 2 hours to complete and can be taken in segments. Part 2 will take students approximately 20-30 minutes. Students will have access to the program 24 hours a day and can complete the course at their own pace before scheduled deadlines. Students must complete the course from start to finish (Phase 1 and Phase 2) to ensure an effective curricular and prevention experience.

No. You may log in and out of the course at the end of each section. Section ends are marked with a “Next” button. DO NOT log out until you click the “Next” button or you will have to repeat the section you have just gone through.

Note: Once you start the exam however, you need to complete it in one sitting. If you log out during the exam, the program will assume you are complete and will assign a grade.

AlcoholEdu content is customized by gender, drinking pattern, level of awareness, and student choices on the pre-test survey. This customization ensures that the content is relevant to each student. For example, the course pathway is different for students whose initial responses categorize them as abstainers, high risk, or moderate drinkers.

Part 1 of AlcoholEdu will be available beginning June 9, 2017.  Students should complete Part 1 prior to arriving on campus for their New Student Orientation Session, but no later than September 1, 2017. Students will receive an automated email on or about October 1, 2017 reminding them to log in and complete Part 2 and the final survey.

Any student who does not complete Part 1 by the deadline (September 1, 2017) will have a registration hold placed on their account.  This hold will prevent them from registering for Spring 2018 semester classes.  Once the student completes Part 1 of AlcoholEdu the hold will be removed.

Yes. Whether or not you drink, you will very likely encounter other students who drink or talk about drinking while at Rutgers. The course provides information about coping with others’ drinking behavior as well as responding effectively in situations where others are at risk of alcohol-related harm (e.g. alcohol poisoning, potential drinking and driving). If you do not drink, the information you receive will be specifically tailored to your choice.

Yes. All incoming students must complete AlcoholEdu.

If you completed AlcoholEdu at your previous college, you can send verification to nb.compliance@rutgers.edu to prove that you completed the same course within the last 12 months. We will then consider whether an exemption is appropriate.  Note that the course must be AlcoholEdu. Even if the course you took was similar, you may not use it as a substitute.

If you are an incoming undergraduate (first-year or transfer), you are expected to complete the course. AlcoholEdu provides information about coping with others’ drinking behavior and responding effectively in situations where others are at risk of alcohol-related harm (e.g. alcohol poisoning, potential drinking and driving).

Even though you are of legal drinking age or might have already considered your drinking behaviors, we expect you to complete the program because:

  1. You might learn from the program or rethink some of your attitudes and behaviors about alcohol;
  2. Your academics and social life might be affected by students whose drinking attitudes are less well-established than yours;
  3. As a new or returning student, you are responsible, as we all are, for helping maintain the health and safety of our campus.

All entering students must complete AlcoholEdu. Alcohol use in the college environment has the potential to affect everyone. Even students who do not drink alcohol might be impacted by the potential drinking behavior of their peers. AlcoholEdu provides personalized paths through the curriculum so if a student doesn’t drink, they will receive support and specific information tailored to their choice.

AlcoholEdu includes three surveys that offer students feedback on their alcohol-related attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are strictly confidential; Rutgers University will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will NEVER see any individual student’s answers. Because Rutgers requires students to pass the knowledge exam with a score of 80% or higher, the AlcoholEdu administrators at the school will receive exam scores; this is the only information ever matched with a student’s identity.

No. All individual answers are kept confidential and we are unable to see how individual students answer each question. Rutgers will be able to see the collective data of the student body, but not specific responses. Students will NOT be penalized for any answers on the survey portion of AlcoholEdu.

You will need to retake the exam until you receive a passing grade of 80%. Part 1 is only completed after you have received a passing grade.

For students needing audio accommodations, closed captioning is available to turn on in the course.  For students requiring visual accommodations, transcripts are available that can be read by a wide variety of screen readers. Please email nb.compliance@rutgers.edu for any additional assistance.

Transit–Financial Wellness Questions

Yes. All incoming students are expected to complete Transit—Financial Wellness. Even if you feel you are on top of your own economic well-being, it’s very likely that during your college experience you will know others who might not be. At the very least, financial wellness might be a topic of discussion among fellow students and the course includes material on personal money management in social situations. One of the purposes of the course is also to provide the entire incoming class with a shared baseline of knowledge and awareness of financial literacy issues.

Yes. All incoming Rutgers—New Brunswick first-year and transfer students are expected to complete Transit—Financial Wellness. One of the purposes of the course is to provide the entire incoming class with a common baseline of knowledge and awareness of financial literacy issues.

Finances and affordability are a major area of concern for students. This brings a need for an increase in financial literacy services for students on campus. With increasing college tuition and student loan debt having surpassed credit card debt in the US in 2011, we want to make sure that students are empowered to make sound financial decisions. It is our hope that providing online financial tools for every incoming student on a mass level will help curb some of the economic fear and financial distress students have exhibited.

Transit—Financial Wellness is a one hour long course.

No. If you wish to request an exemption, please contact us at nb.compliance@rutgers.edu with the following information so that we can verify your completion of the course:

  • The name of the financial literacy course; and
  • The approximate month and year you took the course.

A score of 75% or higher is required to pass Part 1. Students who do not pass on their first attempt will have to retake the test until they receive a passing score.

For students needing audio accommodations, closed captioning is available to turn on in the course.  For students requiring visual accommodations, transcripts are available that can be read by a wide variety of screen readers. Please email nb.compliance@rutgers.edu for any additional assistance.
