SVSH Prevention Training for Graduates

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 training.

Mandatory Incoming Graduate Student Trainings 

  • Title IX training (via Webinar for Fall 2021) AND
  • Online Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduates (SAPG) program 
*Both trainings are required for incoming students. Continuing graduate students will be assigned the online course only.

Title IX Training-via Webinar 

Grad Division will be sending communications to your UCSC email related to orientation and the mandatory Title IX training. The Title IX training will be presented via webinar on Wednesday, September 22nd between 11am-12pm, Pacific time.  A make up option will be made available via Canvas for students who are unable to attend the live webinar.  

Here is a link to the grad orientation schedule. 

Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduates (SAPG)-online program 

Incoming graduates must ALSO complete Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduates (SAPG) 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. Continuing graduate students must complete SAPG as part of their ongoing sexual violence sexual harassment prevention training and to ensure that they are aware of their rights, resources, and responsibilities but need not also attend a zoom or webinar training. Training is assigned upon enrollment and is due within 30 days of the initial assignments. Students who have not completed SAPG by September 30, 2021 11:59 p.m. will have winter enrollment holds placed on their accounts. SAPG will remain available by logging in directly to the Everfi website (using your gold password) but the hold will remain in place until completion. Please consider that once holds are placed, there will be a delay of up to two business days before the removal can be processed.
