Know the Code Workshop Frequently Asked Questions
What is this and why do I have to complete it?
As a University, there is certain information that is important for us to deliver to students prior to the start of school that was not conveyed during your orientation program. All incoming freshmen are required to complete two online trainings: Know the Code and Everfi. These two courses cover different content but complement each other, and both are vital to ensuring a safe and healthy environment for all our community members. Now that you are a Zip, we want to make sure you are informed as you begin your Akron Experience.
What is Know the Code and Everfi?
Know the Code covers campus safety, your student code of conduct, and important information regarding sexual assault awareness.
You will be receiving notification from the Dean of Students' office with instructions on how to complete your "Everfi" training course on "Creating a Culture of Respect."
