Why am I required to take this training?

MIT is committed to working with all students to create a healthy and vibrant campus community. One aspect of this is to confront the important topics of sexual assault, harassment and relationship violence. As a part of this ongoing effort, we have partnered with EverFi to offer two Sexual Assault Prevention courses, each customized to meet the needs of undergraduate and graduate students respectively. It allows you to become familiar with MIT policies and resources while also providing training on critical prevention skills and strategies.

What if I have personal concerns about taking this training?

If you feel that taking this training would be difficult, please feel free to contact Bianca Kaushal at to discuss other options.

What if I have already taken a version of this training at MIT?

MIT has gone through several updates to our sexual assault prevention training in an effort to have a comprehensive, interactive, and accessible training for all students. There are now distinct courses for Undergraduate Students and Graduate Students because we realize that the experiences of those two populations on campus can be very different. All undergraduate students transitioning into graduate programs at MIT are required to take the SAP-Grad training module. 

What if I have already taken a course like this at another school as part of my graduate degree requirements?

Students that are concurrently enrolled at another university may qualify for an exception. Contact for more information.

How long does it take to complete this training?

Sexual Assault Prevention-Graduates Students takes approximately 1 hour to complete. You may take it in multiple sittings.

How will MIT use the information I provide in this training?

All survey responses are confidential; the school will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will never see individual students' responses. Administrators will have access to student test scores, but like the surveys, will not have access to individual responses.

I have reached the “Conclusion” slide but the NEXT button is greyed-out. Am I done with the training?

Yes, if you have reached the “Conclusion” slide, you have completed Part 1. You should receive a completion email within 30 minutes. If that does not occur, email

I have completed the training but it is not showing up in the Atlas Learning Center as such. Why isn’t it showing up?

Because EverFi is an external vendor, it takes up to 30 minutes for the Learning Center system to be notified that new trainings have been completed. If you do not see a completion notice under the course after 30 minutes, email Bianca Kaushal at

**Because of high volume of users, receiving a completion email could take a few hours

When am I supposed to take Part 2 of this course?

Part 2 will be available to you 70 days after the completion of Part 1. This is so that you are on campus and have time to experience MIT in more depth before you retake the survey. The courses are designed to see what you know before you take them. The post-assessment in Part 2 checks your understanding after you have had time to process the material. This pre- and post-assessment helps MIT to determine if the courses are effective. 

How do I access Part 2?

Even though this screen indicates that you have completed Sexual Assault Prevention: Grad (SAPG), you still need to access and complete Part 2:

Click the "view course" link in the grey box to the right

On the EverFi dashboard, click on the Sexual Assault Prevention: Grad (SAPG) “Access Course” button to launch Part 2
