First-Year Student Alcohol Education Requirement

As part of our campus wellness education efforts, Cal State San Marcos requires all of our incoming first-year students to complete – an online alcohol education and prevention program.   Whether you drink or not, will help you to make effective decisions about alcohol and help you better cope with drinking behaviors of your fellow students, friends or family. Cal State San Marcos is committed to the wellness and success of our students, and we are confident your participation in the program will be helpful to you as you begin your first year at our university.
