Sexual Assault Prevention Course

Ithaca College expects all incoming first year students to complete Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates, an online educational program, prior to arriving on campus.  This course must be completed on a computer, iPad, or tablet with access to internet and audio capabilities.  In New York State, all colleges and universities have adopted a definition of affirmative consent.  Affirmative consent is a knowing, voluntary, and mutual decision among all participants to engage in sexual activity. It is important that all of our students understand this definition and their role in preventing sexual violence from occurring in our community.

Additionally, Ithaca College is requiring all incoming students to complete Alcohol Edu which provides information about healthy behaviors related to the alcohol and other drugs.  You can access information about this course by going here.
