AlcoholEdu for College – Freshmen Students

UMBC is one of hundreds of institutions nationwide requiring every member of their first year class to complete AlcoholEdu – a non-opinionated, science-based course taken by hundreds of thousands of students each year. Whether or not you drink, AlcoholEdu empowers students to make well-informed decisions and provides some simple strategies to help keep you and your friends safe.

AlcoholEdu offers a confidential, personalized experience for each student.

The course includes:

  • Alcohol-related content featuring videos, blogs, IM chats, comics, and more
  • Helpful tools, like a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) calculator and map of US laws
  • Safe partying strategies and tips for helping a friend

You will receive a message in your UMBC email account in early August that will provide more details about this program, including how to access the course and deadline dates for completing it.
