As part of our comprehensive health and safety program, USU requires all students who are enrolled in a non-certificate degree-granting program for 6 credit hours or more per semester to participate in a sexual misconduct prevention training each academic year. These trainings will empower students to make informed decisions about issues that affect our USU community.

The following student groups are required to participate in additional sexual misconduct prevention and bystander intervention training each academic year: leaders of student organizations, members of fraternities and sororities, and student-athletes.

Questions about the student sexual misconduct prevention training requirements can be directed to prevention@usu.edu.

If you have a hold on your account and you need guidance about which training to complete, email prevention@usu.edu. In the email, include your name, A number, semester when the hold was placed, campus location, and whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student.

Incoming Students - Sexual Misconduct Prevention Training

Incoming students – including first-year undergraduate students, students returning from a leave of absence, transfer students and first-year graduate students – are required to complete the sexual misconduct prevention training during their first semester at USU.

The sexual misconduct prevention training is provided in-person for incoming students at residential campuses (Blanding, Eastern, and Logan campuses) and online for incoming students at Statewide Campuses and for online-only incoming students.

USU understands that students may have difficulties completing the required sexual misconduct prevention training due to its content. If a student has experienced trauma related to sexual misconduct and is unable to participate in the program, they may contact the Office of Equity’s Prevention Team at prevention@usu.edu to request an exemption.

Students requesting an exemption should use the email subject line “Training Exemption” and include their name, A-number, and campus location (Logan, Eastern, Blanding, etc.) in the body of their email. Students are not required to give specifics as to why they are requesting this exemption.

If students include specific details about their sexual misconduct experience(s) in their training exemption request email, that information will be reported to USU’s Title IX Coordinator. The Prevention Team will send students who request an exemption a follow-up email with information about relevant on- and off-campus resources.
