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 Zoom or Webinar during Shelter in Place) 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 or Zoom

Please check your UCSC student email for more information about the upcoming training which will take place during Welcome Week for all incoming undergraduates (including freshman and transfer). The Title IX training contains information about campus specific resources and is schedule during orientation or shortly after the start of each quarter. A make up option will be made available via Canvas for students who are unable to attend the live webinar.  

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. The due date for continuing students to complete SAPG is April 14th.
