What is it?

Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates (SAPU) is an interactive course that addresses the critical issues of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalkingspecifically on college campuses.

The course encourages students to reflect on their personal values when it comes to relationships; uses scenarios from diverse perspectives to provide a relevant and inclusive experience; challenges harmful and demeaning language and attitudes; and provides guidance for supporting a friend who may have experienced sexual violence.

How it works

SAPU is a two-part course with a 30-day waiting period between each part. Check your ONID email for your specific due dates for each part of the course. Please note that part 2 of the course will not be accessible until after your 30-day waiting period and you must finish part 2 to receive credit for completing the course.

SAPU is...

  • A confidential, personalized, and interactive course that educates students on healthy relationships, sexual health, consent, and sexual violence.
  • A program that explores the ethics of relationships.
  • A program that educates students on the role of alcohol with regards to giving consent.
  • A program that discredits myths associated with sexual assault.

SAPU is not...

  • A scare tactic.
  • Clichéd.
  • Boring.
  • A waste of time.

After completing SAPU, you will be able to...

  • Identify sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking.
  • Be equipped to recognize potentially dangerous real-life situations.
  • Learn ways to intervene in risky situations.
  • Understand alcohol’s role in consent.
  • Know OSU policies, procedures, and resources.

Why do I have to take this course?                             

Oregon State University's goal is to make all OSU students aware of how sexual violence is perpetrated and perpetuated and also provide students with a common language so we, as a community, can continue the conversation of sexual violence.

All OSU students are part of our campus community, and therefore part of the change that we seek to initiate with SAPU.

Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates is one of many ways we are working to creating a healthy, safe, and welcoming environment for everyone.

What happens if I do not complete each part by my specific due dates?

Failure to complete each part of the course(s) will result in a grades hold on your student account. This type of hold does not impact your ability to register for classes. The only way to lift this hold is to complete each part of the required courses. Once you complete the part of the course, the hold will be lifted from your account within 24 hours of completion.
