First-Year Announcement of Courses (FY AOC) Supplement (updated 06/16/2014)



We require every new incoming Gettysburg College student to complete AlcoholEdu for College and Haven before arriving on campus.

AlcoholEdu for College has two sections, and Haven is one course with several sections that will take an additional 45 minutes to an hour to complete. You must complete both sections of AlcoholEdu and Haven to fulfill this requirement or you will be placed on a registration hold and ineligible to register for spring classes:

  • You may access both courses beginning Monday, August 4th.
  • Part 1 of AlcoholEdu takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete, and we recommend that you take it in multiple sittings. This part ends after the Exam and Survey 2. You must earn a grade of 75% or higher to pass and receive credit for the course. The deadline for finishing Part 1 is Friday, August 29th.
  • About 30-45 Days after you complete Part 1, you will receive an email asking you to complete Part 2, which takes approximately 15 minutes. The deadline to complete Part 2 is Monday, October 27th.
  • Haven is a separate course that you can take at any point before the August 29th deadline.
  • NOTE:  Only once you have finished Part 2 have you completed the program. 



First-Years will receive Post Office Box numbers the first week of August.
