UM Prevention Education Programs

To all UM students,

We are so glad you will be here with us at the University of Montana for Spring 2019! As a learning community, we strongly value creating and sustaining a healthy campus environment and preparing our students to be responsible and successful citizens of our campus, society, and the global community. Our staff, faculty, and students are all dedicated to working together to make this vision a reality.

To set you up for a positive and successful experience at UM, all students are required to complete a series of mandatory prevention education programs, some online and one in person, before or during the first half of your first semester. Returning juniors are required to complete a separate online program, Sexual Assault Prevention for Adult Learners. This website introduces you to all of these education programs, provides more information about requirements for completion and timelines, and gives you resources and contacts if you have questions.

You may complete the online programs before classes begin; we strongly encourage you to do so!  If you do not complete your required program(s) by the deadlines, you will be restricted from registering for Summer and Fall 2019 classes. If you currently have a hold on your account and have been directed to our page, you will need to complete the required program(s) to satisfy your hold(s).  

Students do not have to take all five programs; the exact program(s) you will need to complete vary by your class status and whether you are new to UM or a continuing student. The specific program(s) you will need to complete depend on your class status and whether you are new to UM or a continuing student. See the table here for your exact requirements.
