REQUIRED EDUCATION FOR INCOMING STUDENTS

Please note, the below educational requirements must be completed before beginning any recruitment or intake process for any fraternity or sorority. Not completing these educational courses can delay your ability to join a fraternity or sorority.
Dear Incoming Undergraduate and Graduate Students,We are excited to have you join us this Fall for a productive and engaging academic year. At USC, we are dedicated to creating a campus culture driven by student wellbeing and setting you up for greater success both as a student and as a member of the Trojan Family here and beyond.This is supported by a learning environment that fosters safe and healthy relationships among our students in online and on-campus settings. Safe and healthy relationships are created when we develop personal skills related to complex aspects of student life. At USC, one of the ways we do this is to require the completion of prevention education through the following online modules: AlcoholEdu for College, Sexual Assault Prevention, Staying Safe, and the Trojans Respect Consent workshop. In the following months, we will be adding a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion online module.

Additionally, USC has an online module called Mental Well-being for Students that we encourage all students to take and become familiar with as a way to manage stress, anxiety, and other common experiences in academic life.

The table below displays all prevention education offerings:
