AlcoholEDU Instructions for Students

Please note that the course includes three surveys that measure alcohol-related attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are strictly confidential; UNA will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will never see individual students’ answers.

To take AlcoholEdu for College, you will need a computer with Internet access and audio capabilities. If you don’t have internet access at home, you can visit your local library or internet café to complete the course.

To begin AlcoholEdu for College:

  1. Log in to your UNA Portal account.  Your user name and initial password information were sent to you on the purple card that was included with your UNA acceptance letter. If you have problems logging in to UNA Portal, please email or call 256.765.4865 for assistance.
