New Student Online Modules

Required Learning Modules

All incoming first-year and transfer students are required to complete two online learning modules. Both online modules provide information that is essential to your success as a Rutgers student:

Sexual Violence Prevention

Sexual Violence Prevention* is designed to help prevent sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, and stalking. Students will learn how to identify potentially dangerous situations and intervene to stop them.

Sexual Violence Prevention for Alcohol & Other Drugs

Sexual Violence Prevention for Alcohol & Other Drugs is designed to inform students about the risks of drug and alcohol abuse. Students will learn a variety of methods to manage situations involving these substances.

Because we will discuss information in the modules as part of New Student Orientation, we ask all incoming students to complete the online learning modules before attending orientation. (All new students are expected to attend New Student Orientation! If you have not yet signed up for orientation, you can do so now through your MyRutgers Dashboard.)

Access Learning Modules

For students who do not attend orientation, the modules must be completed by February 1. Any student who fails to complete the two modules by the deadline will have a registration hold placed on their account. You will be unable to register for spring classes until both modules are completed. If you have any questions, please contact Thank you and welcome to Rutgers!


*Content warning: Participating in programs that focus on issues of sexual violence, relationship abuse, and stalking can be very upsetting. It can bring up issues that you have not thought about or perhaps cause you to think about past experiences in a different way. It is common for people to experience a range of emotions including feeling sad, angry, and/or inspired to take action.

No matter how you feel, it is important to take care of yourself. If the program becomes uncomfortable or overwhelming, take a break from it, get a breath of fresh air, or spend some time with friends or by yourself. If you need to talk, there are confidential advocates available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by contacting the Office for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance at Rutgers University–New Brunswick at (848) 932-1181. If you feel that you cannot complete the program requirements due to the emotional impact the material is having on you, please write to
