All UTSA freshmen are mandated to complete the AlcoholEdu online alcohol education course. The course will become available before the start of your entering term (fall, spring or summer). Students must pass the exam with a 75% or higher.
Part I should be completed before you begin classes for your entering term. Please note that Part I will take approximately 3 hours to complete, but does NOT need to be completed all at once.
Part II will be available 45 days after your completion of Part I of the course.
If students incur a hold on their account for non-compliance, they will not be able to view their grades at the end of the semester. The hold will not affect registration or financial aid awards.
