No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.
UCLA is obligated under law and policy to provide our graduate and professional school students with sexual violence prevention education. Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex under any federally funded education program. In addition, the University of California’s Interim Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment (July 31, 2019 Policy | August 14, 2020 Interim Policy) requires each UC campus to provide mandatory annual training and education about Prohibited Conduct and how such conduct can be reported, to all students, faculty, other academic appointees, and staff per applicable State and federal law, and University policies.
For more information, visit the UCLA Sexual Violence Prevention & Response – Policy page. On this page, you will find the links to the 2019 SVSH Policy and the 2020 Interim SVSH Policy.
Thank you for your commitment to eliminating sexual harassment and sexual violence in our UCLA community. This helps our larger effort in creating a safe campus environment.
To fulfill our mandated legal and policy requirements for sexual harassment and sexual violence prevention education, every UC graduate and professional school student is required to complete sexual assault prevention training(s) this academic year as follows:
The training components promote awareness and recognize graduate students’ unique position on campus and provide them with the tools they need to play an important role in UCLA’s sexual harassment and sexual violence prevention efforts. The training includes education about the University’s definition of consent, consensual relationships, prohibited conduct, options for bystander intervention, trauma-informed approaches, and risk reduction awareness information. The training highlights resources for graduate students, as well as information for undergraduates who graduate students may need to refer for support and services. UCOP has partnered with EVERFI to provide the online training.
DEADLINE AND HOLDS
The deadline to complete all compliance requirements is Wednesday, October 28, 2020 for all incoming and continuing graduate and professional students. All incoming graduate and professional students must complete both the online training AND the live virtual training, while all continuing graduate and professional students must complete the online refresher training, on or by the deadline. This provides ample time to complete the training before registration opens for the second academic term of 2020-21. Students who are not able to complete the training by the deadline will have a registration hold placed on their record, AND this will prevent them from enrolling for courses for the next academic term. The hold may also impact financial aid and stipend disbursement. Failure of F-1 and J-1 international students to enroll due to the registration hold may cause termination of their visa status.
For INCOMING (New) Graduate and Professional Students:
Deadline: Wednesday, October 28, 2020
For CONTINUING Graduate and Professional Students:
Deadline: Wednesday, October 28, 2020
Per UC Title IX policy, sexual harassment prevention education is to be provided on an ongoing basis.
Sexual Assault Prevention: Graduate Students
Sexual Assault Prevention: Ongoing
How to Access
The online trainings for incoming and continuing students can be accessed in two ways:
– Work at your own pace from any computer or tablet
– Courses will save your progress if you need to stop and return later
– Courses are best supported by the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Safari (preferred), or Microsoft Internet Explorer 11+

Please be advised that the content of the online training and virtual training modules deal with accounts of sexual assault and may be triggering. Survivors of violence may experience negative feelings when re-exposed to these topics. Not all survivors of trauma are affected. We ask that students please practice self-care and seek help if needed. If they need assistance in completing these trainings, please have them contact a CARE Advocate. See contact information listed below.
Title IX Training for Graduate Students
All incoming graduate students are also required to complete a live virtual Title IX Training for Graduate Students, which is facilitated by the Title IX Office. Students must attend one of the sessions offered throughout the first few weeks of the Fall quarter. The virtual training will be provided via a Zoom Webinar or similar platform. Links will be provided to those who have registered for a general virtual training session.
GENERAL Live Virtual Training Schedule:
NOTE: For programs that have already provided an exclusive virtual training session during their program orientation, students do not need to register or attend a general virtual training session. For a complete list of those programs who have provided exclusive in-person training, please refer to the list below. However, if any of these incoming students missed the exclusive training provided by their department, they must attend one of the Fall general virtual training sessions. Graduate students from GEMBA, and other online-only graduate programs (MSOL) are NOT required to take a virtual training.
EXCLUSIVE Live Virtual Training Schedule:
The graduate programs listed below have already arranged for an exclusive virtual training session for their cohorts. Some graduate programs have been combined. The zoom webinar link to attend the exclusive virtual training will be provided to you by your department. No need to pre-register for the exclusive in-person training session. However, note that your department will need to track your attendance via MyUCLA during the training.
Attendance: To get credit for the virtual training, an attendance link will be provided during the session where you will be asked to log on to your MyUCLA to confirm your attendance.
Graduate students who are employed by the University (e.g. TAs, RAs, peer advisors, student employees, etc.) are considered to be Responsible Employees. A Responsible Employee is any University employee who is not a Confidential Resource. If a Responsible Employee learns, in the course of employment, that a student may have experienced Prohibited Conduct, they must promptly notify the Title IX Officer or designee. Responsible Employees are required to report to Title IX upon receiving information of prohibited conduct contained with the SVSH policy. Upon receiving a report of Prohibited Conduct, a Responsible Employee is required to report all details received, including the identities of individuals involved.
In addition to the training requirements, it is important that each student become familiar with the resources and options that are available to them on campus and locally. The Resources, Options and Support brochure identifies important resources for all graduate students, including sexual violence and sexual harassment reporting options and resources. The brochure and additional resource materials can be found in this Box folder.
