On behalf of the Office of Community Standards, we would like to welcome you to Merrimack College and congratulate you on the beginning of an incredible journey. 

Making Well-Informed Decisions

At Merrimack, we are dedicated to positioning you for greater success, both as a student and a member of the community here and beyond.

Merrimack College is one of hundreds of institutions nationwide requiring every new student to complete AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention — non-opinionated, science-based courses taken by hundreds of thousands of students each year.

Please note: AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention online courses are available now. 

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. We also promote student health and safety through the use of Sexual Assault Prevention, a program that educates students about the elements of healthy relationships, the importance of sexual consent and the role of bystanders in creating safe, healthy communities.

AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention offer a confidential, personalized experience for each student. This online education will empower you to make well-informed decisions about issues that affect you during your college years and beyond.

You will only need one EverFi Higher Education Account to access the courses. You are expected to complete both AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention. Students who do not complete both courses may be subject to fines and/or holds on student records.
