Oklahoma State University takes acts of sexual violence and sexual harassment seriously. In an effort to comply with the Violence Against Women Act and the Office for Civil Rights federal guidelines, all students are required to complete online training on sexual violence prevention. A registration hold will be placed on student's accounts, which will affect enrollment for the subsequent semester, until the training has been completed. Training should take around 90 minutes.
