AlcoholEdu for College

At the University of Central Missouri we expect every freshman under the age of 24 at UCM to take AlcoholEdu for College, an online alcohol prevention program; our goal is to ensure that students have a successful experience that leads to earning a meaningful degree to start them on a prosperous career path. One way we do this is by educating all new first year students about alcohol – how it affects the mind and body, and how it can impact your college success.
