Welcome to Mount St. Joseph University


Dear Student,

The faculty and staff of Mount St. Joseph University share your exceptional vision and ambition for all aspects of your life, in and out of the classroom.  Your personal and professional development, and that of your peers, is the cornerstone of a partnership that will last during your years here and beyond.

As you well know, alcohol and other drugs can be significant issues in the lives of students in both high school and college and throughout our lives.  The abuse of alcohol and other substances impairs one’s judgment, often resulting in negative consequences that affect one’s academic and social success.  We take every part of the university experience very seriously; therefore, we have implemented a comprehensive prevention program through a partnership with EverFi Higher Education.  

EverFi developed “Think About It”, an online interactive course, to help campuses promote a safer environment for students by teaching students to make healthier, better informed decisions about relationships, sex, drugs and alcoholIn addition, this online course helps Mount St. Joseph University comply with the Drug Free Schools Act and the Campus SaVE Act which mandates colleges and universities that participate in federal student aid programs to adopt prevention and awareness programs for all incoming students. 

 To this end, we require every new incoming Mount St. Joseph University student to take “Think About It”.  Neglecting to take the course will result in a HOLD on your registration for classes for the next semester. 

 You will receive an invitational email from EverFi/Mount St. Joseph University which will give you instructions on how to register and log in using your current MSJ email account. To take “Think About It” from EverFi, you will need a computer with Internet access and audio capabilities.

 You may access the course  by responding to the EverFi email
