To help ensure that you have a positive experience at Towson University and that you are aware of your rights and responsibilities as a member of our campus community, we educate all incoming students about alcohol, how it affects your mind and body, and how it can impact your college career and academic success.
To this end, we expect every first-year student to take
AlcoholEdu for College, an online alcohol prevention program, before arriving on campus. You will be contacted in July by email with instructions on how to log in and complete the program online.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the Login ID?
The first year login ID for students will be
I will be away for the summer and won’t have
access to a computer until I return to come back to
school in August. What should I do?
The AlcoholEdu program can be accessed from any
computer, so the student should be encouraged to log on
periodically to take and complete the program. If they
will not have access to any computer, they should be
told that they should complete it as soon as possible
before coming to campus.
Is the program required?
Students will be told, in an e-mail from Dr. Moriarty,
that we expect every first year student to take
AlcoholEdu for College before arriving on campus. The
Vice President for Student Affairs has made this
expectation known, and will determine what course of
action to take if the course is not completed. Our goal
is to ensure that students are aware of the importance
the university places on educating all incoming students
about alcohol, how it affects the mind and body, and how
it can impact their college career and academic success.
I don’t know what my
Student ID is; how can I find out what it is?
On the registration page, the
student has the opportunity to create their own account
using their e-mail and a password of their choice. They
will need to enter
Student ID, which was sent to the student in their
acceptance letter, which will also be given at
orientation, and also can be found on their Student ID
card. It will also be on the letter/e-mail they received
informing them of the AlcoholEdu requirement.

program? What if I can’t log in?
