In addition to Welcome Weekend programming, SCSU has the following new student program requirement:


Respect and Responsibility Program

As a St. Cloud State University student, you are now part of a vibrant and diverse campus community. To help foster a welcoming and safe community, we require that all new students complete the Respect and Responsibility program as part of their ongoing Orientation. You will receive more information on part one and two of the program through your HuskyNet e-mail account.  If the program is not completed by the deadline noted in the email a hold will be placed on your registration for the next semester.

Part One: Informed on Sexual Assault is an online educational course that addresses the issue of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and dating violence on the college campus. You will receive an email sent to your HuskyNet account from the Women's Center with instructions and the code needed to access this course. We encourage you to complete this course prior to classes starting if possible.

Part Two: Community through Diversity is a one-hour long on-campus workshop on creating a caring and respectful community. This program is available for students who attend Spring New Student Orientation as part of the day's program. Students who do not attend this workshop during Orientation must register and attend a workshop offered during spring semester.

For more information on the Respect and Responsibility Program, visit and if you have questions about Part Two, Community through Diversity, please e-mail

All new entering students are charged a fee for Orientation at SCSU.
