About the Training

What is EverFi?

EverFi is a higher education learning platform through which students access interactive, online courses designed to provide awareness, prevention and training to students about three important issues: 

Alcohol Education
This research-based course provides students with helpful information in a non-judgmental tone and provides personalized feedback that encourages students to consider their own drinking decisions and those of their peers.

Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention
An innovative digital course that arms students with the knowledge and skills to make healthy, informed decisions when it comes to prescription medications using an evidence-based, population-level approach to prevention.

Sexual Assault Prevention
This course helps develop accurate perceptions of social norms, increases empathy and support for survivors, and increases students’ ability to intervene and prevent sexual assault.

Who is required to take the EverFi Wellness Training Courses? 

All incoming freshmen and transfer students must complete wellness training. Success of the program is based upon population-level prevention, a concept that recognizes that students’ choices likely impact those of their peers. Providing new students with a consistent message about these issues can encourage thoughtful conversations, inspire a shift in behaviors, and highlight a campus culture that values healthy choices.

Accessing the EverFi Training Platform 

Students who need to complete the wellness training requirement are identified in advance and accounts are created by the wellness training administrators. An email invitation is sent to the email address on file with the university with log in instructions. The training platform can also be accessed online

Note that students need to have an account created for them in advance of taking the course (it is not possible to register via this URL above). If students have not received a welcome email, would like to update their email address or encounter a message that states they do not have an account, please contact wellnesstraining@umd.edu for assistance in being registered.
