Dear STAC Students,
St. Thomas Aquinas College (STAC) has partnered with EVERFI to provide critical online education as part of our comprehensive prevention program for students. As part of your STAC 101 Orientation class, you may be required to complete two important EVERFI courses:
- Alcohol.edu (alcohol and drug education)
- You need to pass this course with an 70% or higher. If you fail it, you may retake the course. You may retake the course as many times as you need to obtain the required passing score.
- Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates
Please note that if you attended a student orientation in July 2019, you may have been given a different assignment called My Student Body (Alcohol, Drugs, and Sexual Violence modules), which was due on 8/2/19. If you completed that assignment with the required passing scores, you do not need to do the EVERFI assignment. If however you did not complete the My Student Body assignment, you may need to complete this EVERFI online course.
If you’ve been assigned the EVERFI courses (Alcohol.edu and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates) you are expected you to complete the assignment by 10/21/19 (passing score of 70% or higher on Alcohol.edu). Failure to complete this assignment by the assigned due date may result in a failing grade for your STAC 101 class.
