MyStudentBody Tips For Incoming Students

1. It’s a good idea to use your school email address as your username. The main reason for this is to make sure it’s easy for your school to “know”  who you are when they are checking to see if you had completed the course. Also, if you use an outside email provider (e.g., your parents’ cable company, Gmail, Hotmail, et cetera), then it’s less likely any messages we try to send you (like password assistance or completion certificates) will get through.

2. We ask for a portion of the student’s Social Security number for account confirmation purposes. If a student doesn’t have an SSN (for example, an international student), or doesn’t want to share it, they can choose any similar number they can remember easily. No-one is cross-checking these with your school record. It is only used for password retrieval in the event that you forget your password.

3. New students only have to take the Essentials course (not the Student Conduct course). Here’s a hint: If the first questions are about “alcohol offenses” and you have never gotten in trouble for drinking or having alcohol at college, then you are taking the wrong course! You only need to take the modules that appear under the orange bar that is labeled Essentials.

4. It really is confidential. We can’t and won’t share identifying information about a student in connection with any health behavior reporting. The only time we ever identify a student is when we let the school know you have registered for the site, or to update them about student course progress.

5. The follow-up isn’t the same as the course. Students at some schools will get an email a few weeks after they complete the course, asking them to do a follow-up survey. It’s JUST a survey, not a whole course. Taking it will help your school understand more about how students change once they come to school.

6. If students need technical help, we are ready to assist. Fill out the support form and/or contact our technical support email address Typically, technical support cases are handled during the regular work-week, so don’t panic if you submit a case on Saturday or Sunday and don’t hear back right away

7. If you complete this course before the deadline date, you don’t need to send us a completion certificate – we know you did it!
