Please see additional tips below to complete AlcoholEdu & Haven!
- Use a standard computer (desktop or laptop). Notebooks, tablets, and other mobile devises are not encouraged.
- Do not have other windows/frames and other programs open when taking AlcoholEdu or Haven.
- Disable all pop-up blockers and uninstall any toolbars. These can cause problems with the media files and cause them to loop over and over.

- Consider connecting directly to the internet, rather than using a wireless connection.
- Clear your computer's cache before beginning the program.
- When you open AlcoholEdu or Haven make sure it is in its own window and not within a frame of your school portal or email client.
- After completing registration, go to MyAlcoholEdu or Haven and choose “Audio Only” on the Course Settings page.
- Do not use the "BACK" button on your browser while you are taking the program.
- You may log in and out of the course at the end of each section. DO NOT log out until you click "next" button or your answers will not be saved.

- Log in at a campus lab or library as opposed to your residence hall for a faster Internet connection.

Additionally, AlcoholEdu for College/Haven-Understanding Sexual Assault requires Flash 7.0 or higher, and either Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator for best results. If one does not have ready access to a computer that meets the minimum system technical requirements, we recommend using a computer at a local library, copy center, or community center. For more detailed technical information, use the Student Troubleshooting Guide (pdf) and scroll to Computer Requirements.
