Alcohol Education Workshop (AEW)


What is an Alcohol Education Workshop?

This is an educational, two-hour workshop focused on responsible and safe alcohol use. This workshop is designed to provide education to students following their first university alcohol policy violation. Students must attend the entire two-hour workshop in order to meet the requirements of the university sanction. If a student needs documentation to meet court requirements, ACES staff will provide a letter verifying attendance. The documentation fee is $10 per letter and the student is responsible to make sure this letter meets the needs of their probation officer, judge, or lawyers.
