Mandatory Student Training

Each fall semester, all incoming undergraduate students are required to participate in an online and in-person sexual assault prevention program in order to be able to register for spring semester classes. Transfer students are only required to complete the online training.

Register for a Mandatory Training

After you complete the online "Think About It" training, choose a topic and register for one in-person workshop. After you register, you will receive an email confirmation with a code. Make sure to enter that code back into the last page of "Think About It" so that you will be recorded as having finished. 

Each session will cover definitions of consent and sexual assault, information about GW resources, and policies governing sexual misconduct in addition to the topic for the session. Choose a topic below and complete your registration.
