Sexual Violence/Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Requirements for Graduate Students

In order to ensure awareness of graduate student resources and reporting options and in recognition of federal government regulations and UC system wide guidelines, all students, staff, and faculty are required to complete sexual violence/sexual harassment prevention training.  Graduate students that do not complete  the required courses will have enrollment holds placed pending completion of both of the trainings.

Mandatory Incoming Fall Graduate Trainings 

Incoming graduate students must complete Title IX training during Orientation AND an online course called Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduates. The Title IX training contains information about campus specific resources. A make up option will be made available via Canvas for students who are unable to attend the live webinar.  

Title IX Training during Orientation

The Title IX webinar or zoom training is scheduled for Wednesday, September 30, 2020 along with other graduate orientation events. Grad Division will be sending out an orientation registration form in August to your UCSC email.

Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduates (SAPG)

We are updating SAPG with additional information that is specific to UC students and employees and recommend completing it after September 1st. Thank you for your patience!

In addition to the Title IX training during Orientation, incoming graduates must also complete Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduates created by  Everfi. New graduate students who attended UCSC as an undergraduate MUST complete SAPG as the content is new. The online program takes about one hour to complete.

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.
