July 2021

Dear Class of 2025:

On behalf of our faculty, staff, students and alumni, welcome to The University of Alabama family. We want the next four years to be a wonderful time of positive growth for you.

Heading off to college is an exciting time. Over the course of your college career, you will grow and change in large part based on personal interactions and the environment in which you live. We offer numerous programs and services to assist students in the transition to college. One of these programs is EVERFI, a web-based education program that is required of all incoming students. It is one way the University fulfills federal requirements from the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Justice.

The EVERFI program educates students in five specific areas before they arrive on campus — community, balance, wellness, healthy relationships and diversity and inclusion. This program has been helpful to many college students seeking ways to balance their new freedom in living away from home with their need to establish a healthy lifestyle as a young adult.

Every incoming student is required to take the EVERFI course, which comes in two parts. You will receive an email to your UA email address on July 13, 2021 with specific directions for logging on to the course through myBama for Part 1 which needs to be completed prior to August 11. On or after September 6, you will receive an e-mail with updates to complete Part 2 to be completed by October 15. Completing all lessons will take a few hours, so we encourage you to break them up into separate sessions, just make sure to complete all lessons by each deadline.

If you have any questions about the program, or if you have any problems accessing the course, please reference our website at everfi.sl.ua.edu.
