Fall 2014 First Year Student Deadlines & Non-Compliance Fee Information

  • Access to the MyStudentBody “Essentials” course begins on July 23, 2014 
  • Part 1 must be completed by August 17, 2014
  • Part 2, the 60 day follow-up to Part 1, must be completed by October 22, 2014

The entire course takes approximately 1 to 1.5 hours to complete. The course can be completed in one setting or can be broken up into two or more settings; be sure you have completed the exam and printed out your completion certificate for your records. Do not email your certificate to USD; however, you can email a copy to yourself for your own records. You will need a minimum score of 80% on each of the Alcohol, Drugs, and Sexual Violence sections to pass Part 1. If you do not score 80% or better in each section, be sure to retake the test until you have a passing score.

Part 2 becomes accessible 60 days from your Part 1 completion date. Mark your calendar for 60 days after you complete Part 1. At that time, you will need to go back to the My Student Body website to complete Part 2.

A $250 non-compliance fee will be assessed to students who do not fully complete both portions of the course within the deadlines. This is a non-negotiable non-compliance fee that will be assessed to your student account. Be sure to complete both Part 1 and Part 2 of the "Essentials" course to avoid this non-compliance fee and learn about how alcohol and other drugs use and abuse can impact our community.
