Mandatory Undergraduate Student Training

The University of California San Diego is committed to maintaining an environment in which all of us can thrive in a community that is free of sex discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual violence.  Federal law and university policy require that all new students receive education about sexual violence prevention.

Everfi is an online program that introduces incoming undergraduate students to our student community, educational environment and behavioral expectations at UC San Diego. Undergraduate students will be required to take two courses: Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion for Students. Students help to shape this community, and we hope that all members of the community take a proactive role in creating a welcoming campus environment for everyone.

Who has to take the Everfi online program?

All incoming freshmen, transfer and EAP Reciprocity students are required to complete both of the Everfi online programs prior to enrolling in classes.

How long does it take to complete the online program?

Undergraduate students will be required to take two courses:
