Step 13: Complete the Mandatory Introductory Courses

As we strive together to create a socially responsible learning community, USF requires that all students complete three research-based, online training courses. You are required to complete the online courses by the deadlines below.

Catharsis Productions

The university is committed to creating a safe, respectful, and healthy campus culture by empowering students to make decisions that contribute to a successful college experience. Therefore, new and incoming students in their first semester will be assigned to complete two mandatory online training programs through Catharsis Productions.

  • U Got This! is an engaging conversation about bystander intervention, consent, healthy relationships, sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking.
  • Binge Thinking is an interactive, online alcohol abuse prevention program that addresses the effects of alcohol use and abuse, including its impact on cognition, academic success, personal relationships, as well as vulnerability to violence.

You will receive an invitation via email at the end of July when your course becomes available. If you do not receive an email, please contact the Health Promotion Services office at Please complete the course by August 15, otherwise you will be charged a $100 fine.
