Think About It, by Campus Clarity, is a web-based sexual assault prevention and alcohol abuse awareness program. This program will help students make informed decisions regarding alcohol use, empower students to intervene and prevent sexual violence, and give students the tools to address to peers' risky behavior. Think About It will provide students with the information they need to navigate affirmative consent, healthy relationships, and effective communication.

I am having technical difficulties with the online training. What do I do?

Here are a couple troubleshooting recommendations:
• Quit the browser your are using and restart it to see if that makes a difference
• Try a different browser (i.e. Firefox, Chrome, etc.) as the online module may be more efficient on those. Also, make sure that the version of your browser is most up to date.
• If you're currently working on the course and are still experiencing technical issues (ex. audio, video, slideshow, etc.), please contact Campus Clarity's Online Support Center (open 24/7) at: or call 1-844-348-1616.

Why isn't it just informational?

Think About It was developed based on best practices in the fields of education and sexual violence. This approach is interactive so that students will have an opportunity to simulate/observe situations where this information is relevant. Students have commented that information banking of content was "boring" and did not provide an engaging experience in learning.

I've taken this course in another university. Do I need to do this again?

Yes. Per university policy, all new incoming SF State students are required to complete the Think About It course specific to our university. While some of the content may be similar to what you have already completed, the one you are required to complete includes information specific to our SF State campus policies and procedures.

I am reentering the University, but I've already taken this training as a student in the past. Do I need to do this again?

Yes. Per our university policy, all new incoming SF State students are required to complete the mandatory Think About It . You are considered an incoming student if you are:

  • reentering the University after taking one or more semesters off;
  • coming in as a new student for a different program/credential after obtaining a previous degree (undergraduate, graduate, etc.)
  • withdrew from the University in the past and are now returning to continue your education
  • If you are unsure of your student status, or have more questions, please email
