Troubleshooting Guide

Having trouble accessing your account? Having trouble accessing the We Are Slugs! programs? Need technical assistance?

Technical Requirements:

  1. These online programs work best with Google Chrome as the internet browser. Alcohol Education and Sexual Assault Prevention modules work on Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome, provided that cookies are enabled, pop-up blockers are disabled and scripting is allowed. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion ONLY works on Chrome and only with pop-up blockers disabled and cookies allowed. Other browsers may work, but not as well and you may need to do research on how to disable pop ups and enable cookies. Get instructions on how to download Google Chrome.

  2. It is best to complete the courses on a desktop or laptop computer. Only the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion program is supported on a mobile device. AlcoholEdu and the Sexual Assault Prevention programs may not support mobile devices such as a cell phone or tablet.

  3. Get more detailed information about system requirements.
