Information for Parents
Many students choose not to drink, but will still be exposed to the misuse of alcohol during college. As part of our comprehensive alcohol prevention program, Boston University has partnered with EverFi to bring your student AlcoholEdu for College® an online alcohol abuse prevention course designed to help students make well-informed decisions about alcohol and reach their academic goals.
BU requires that every incoming first-year student complete the course before arriving on campus, with a passing score of 70%. All incoming students will receive an email with instructions for completing the course, including login information.
Speaking with your student about alcohol is important. Parents, You’re Not Done Yet! is a simple guide on how to talk with your student about responsible drinking. Read more at The Foundation For Advancing Alcohol Responsibility.
AlcoholEdu for Parents is also available to you for additional resources and information on:
