Sexual Violence/Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Requirements for Graduate Students

In recognition of federal government regulations and UC system wide guidelines, all graduate students are required to complete an online sexual violence/sexual harassment prevention training. There is now one comprehensive online training for graduate students. Graduate students will no longer be asked to complete the Sexual Violence/Sexual Harassment (SVSH) Prevention Training for Staff.  The student training, created by Campus Clarity, is called "Think About It: Graduates" and is administered by the Title IX Office. Graduate students must complete the online training each academic year. 

If you completed a training last year, you ARE REQUIRED to complete it again this year.  UC Santa Cruz wants to ensure that all students are aware of the resources available to them, and repeated trainings were found to benefit retention of the material and reduce the occurrence of harassment in the community.

To access the online training go to and click "Login to Training." Use your UCSC email address to register. If you have already registered and have forgotten your password,  click forgot password and follow the directions. For technical support email or call (800) 652-9546.

In addition to the online training all incoming graduate students are required to complete an in-person Title IX training upon entry into UC Santa Cruz, whereas continuing students are only required to complete one training per year. If a graduate student doesn’t complete any of the required Sexual Violence Sexual Harassment Prevention Trainings, they will continue to face enrollment holds.  

These trainings are mandatory and there are no waivers. Alternate trainings are available for those who have difficulty with the content due to a previous experience of sexual misconduct. Please contact to request an alternate training. All requests for alternate trainings will be kept confidential.
