AlcoholEdu Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What happens if I do not complete AlchoholEdu Part 1 and/or Part 2 with a passing grade prior to the deadline?
A: You will receive a hold on your account, which results in you not being able to register for classes.

Q: Do I need to complete AlcoholEdu all at once or can I take breaks?
A: No, you do not need to complete the course all at once. You are able to save your work throughout the course and return to finish at another time.

Q: I have just completed AlcoholEdu Part 1 and would now like to complete Part 2. Can I go ahead and complete AlcoholEdu Part 2 in advance?
A: No. There is a 30-45 day waiting period until you are able to access AlcoholEdu Part 2.

Q: Am I able to transfer my AlcoholEdu for College credit to meet my GreekLifeEdu requirement?
A: No. Since the GreekLifeEdu course is tailored totally to the Greek experience, you must complete both courses if your Greek national organization has the GreekLifeEdu requirement.
