Pre-registration Information for All Classes
Students will receive notice of their required sanctions through the Student Community Standards Office.

New policy as of August 2015:  All students who are sanctioned to complete an Alcohol 101 or Drug 101 class must submit a request to attend a class at least 48 hours in advance by emailing Beth Lucas at counseling@rmu.edu or by calling 412-397-5900, in order to be registered.

Alcohol 102 will continue to be an individual meeting in the Counseling Center, and students must also request an individual meeting by emailing Beth Lucas at 
counseling@rmu.edu or by calling 412-397-5900. Please note: there may be a wait time of up to 2-3 weeks for an individual meeting. Students are responsible for scheduling their meeting well enough in advance so that it is completed before their sanction due date.

Alcohol 101
Alcohol 101 is a university course offered by the Counseling Center designed to educate participants about the effects and consequences that result from alcohol use and abuse.  The class is designed to prepare students to make informed decisions regarding their personal alcohol use to avoid the negative consequences associated with alcohol misuse.  Students are also introduced to the resources that are available on-campus and in the community.  Through discussions, demonstrations, and interactive activities, students develop a deeper understanding about their personal choices regarding alcoholic beverages. Please contact Beth Lucas at counseling@rmu.edu or by calling (412) 397-5900 to register for your Alcohol 101 class.

Alcohol 102
Alcohol 102 is a one-on-one, introspective meeting with a Counseling Center therapist to discuss personal alcohol usage.  The meeting is designed for students who receive a second alcohol violation and have attended Alcohol 101 in the past.  During the meeting, the student and staff member will discuss such topics as decision making, the student's values, and future goals.  Each student sanctioned to Alcohol 102 will also write a two-page paper chronicling their past decision-making with their future goals, which must be turned in two days prior to their sanction deadline. 

Please note: there may be a wait time for an individual meeting of up to 2-3 weeks. Students are responsible for scheduling their meeting well enough in advance so that it is completed before their sanction deadline.  Individual appointments for Alcohol 102 can be made by contacting Beth Lucas at counseling@rmu.edu or by calling (412) 397-5900.  

Drug 101
Drug 101 is a university course offered by the Counseling Center designed to educate participants about the effects and consequences that result from drug use and abuse. Each student sanctioned to Drug 101 will also write a two-page paper chronicling their past decision-making with their future goals, which must be turned in two days prior to their sanction deadline. Students are responsible for scheduling their class well enough in advance so that it is completed before their sanction deadline. Please contact Beth Lucas at counseling@rmu.edu or by calling (412) 397-5900 to register for your Drug 101 class.
