Fall 2017 Student Deadlines and Non-Compliance Fee Information

  • Access to the MyStudentBody "Essentials" course begins on July 27, 2017
  • Part 1 must be completed by August 21, 2017 - Deadline extended to Friday, October 6, 2017
  • Part 2, the 60 day follow-up to Part 1, must be completed by October 27, 2017

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.  You 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.  Once you have completed Part 1, be sure to print out your completion certificate for your records; you do not need to email your certificate to USD.   

Part 2 becomes accessible 60 days from your Part 1 completion date. Please mark your calendar for 60 days after your Part 1 completion date. 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 directly to your student account. Be sure to complete both Part 1 and Part 2 of the "Essentials" course by the deadlines to avoid this non-compliance fee and learn about how alcohol and other drug use and abuse can impact our community.
