The University of Alabama is excited to offer a new online education course called AlphaPoint. The University is committed to the health, safety, and wellbeing of all students. In order to provide training that supports this commitment, UA requires that all incoming students complete the course. AlphaPoint will educate students before they arrive on campus about important campus-specific information through five learning modules:

  • Community
  • Balance [Alcohol & Other Drugs]
  • Wellness [Mental Health]
  • Healthy Relationships & Interpersonal Violence
  • Diversity & Inclusion

AlphaPoint is a video-based online education program aimed at enhancing student wellbeing and resilience. New students enrolling for Spring 2019 can expect an email from UA that the required program will open Jan. 7, 2019, and completion is expected before Feb. 1, 2019.
