November 16, 2020: On-Demand Title IX Training Tip

The Title IX course policy acknowledgment can be a little mischievous. It likes to hide behind your browser window. To complete this section follow these steps:

  1. When you open the policy, direct click on it as it automatically opens in a new tab on your browser window. 
  2. Once you have reviewed the policy, minimize the browser window by pressing the dash -. You should be able to find the small course window that was hiding behind it. 
  3. Once you click back on the course window, it should allow you to checkmark the box that says you read the policy and then click the Continue button.

November 2, 2020: On-Demand Dates

The January 1, 2099 date was picked in the system as the furthest date out to help with requirements for compliance courses or courses that offer more than one delivery method.
