Online Training for Graduate Students

Loyola University Maryland offers two on-line courses for your review and completion:

Prescription Misuse - Opioids is offered in compliance with a mandate by the State of Maryland.  Each institution of higher education must have a policy that requires students to participate in heroin and opioid addiction prevention and awareness training.  While graduate students at Loyola receive instructions for completion of this training via email, students may initiate their own training by following the instructions below.

Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduate Students is offered in compliance with federal law.  The course is interactive and contains challenging and interesting real-life situations in an academic setting.  While completion of the Sexual Assault Prevention course is not mandatory, we highly recommend that you complete it this semester.

Both courses are being offered in partnership with Vector Solutions.
