Think About It is an online training designed to promote a healthier and safer campus environment for everyone. Seattle University requires all new students to complete this as part of orientation.
Once you've registered for your first term at SU and after the access date for that term, we'll assign Think About It and notify you via SU email. You'll use your Seattle U login information to access the course.
Every new student registered for 1 or more credits is required to complete this training by the assigned due date. Those who don’t complete the training will have a hold placed on their SU account preventing registration for the following term.
|Joining SU||Access Date||Due Date|
|Fall Terms||August 1||September 15|
|Winter Quarter||December 1||January 2|
|Spring Semester||December 1||January 2|
|Spring Quarter||March 1||March 27|
|Summer Terms||July 1||August 1|
New students who register for classes after the due date will have one week to complete Think About It.
If you did not complete your required course by the deadline and there is a hold on your account, getting it lifted is simple.
Once we receive this we'll remove your hold. This generally takes place within one business day.
This program is just one part of our commitment to preventing sexual misconduct and supporting survivors plus, it’s in alignment with guidance related to Title IX.
If you have any questions or need assistance please contact us directly at ThinkAboutIt@seattleu.edu.

New students can expect an email (at their SU email address) within about 1 week of registering for classes, notifying them of their assignment and due date.
Notification emails are sent from firstname.lastname@example.org with the display alias "Seattle University". Every once in a while our messages get marked as spam.
Students new to SU are usually added to Think About It within a week or so after registering for their first term.
If you'd like to start the course before we assign it to you - no problem!
Seattle University requires all new students to complete Think About It for a few main reasons:
We understand the sensitive nature of sexual misconduct. Think About It was written in a trauma-informed way, however, we recognize everyone is different. If you'd like to complete this program in a supportive office on campus please call Tony Bohn at 206-296-2824 for assistance.
If you are feeling overwhelmed by the content of this program please call James Willette at 206-296-6060 so you can privately discuss your individual situation and determine the best way to proceed. We have options.
We hope this goes without saying, but we care deeply about all our students and are always available to talk.
Once your due date has passed a hold will be placed on your account preventing you from registering for future classes.
There is a feedback form at the end of the program and that is the best place to submit your thoughts anonymously. If you have additional suggestions for improvement please use this online form to submit them. Or call James Willette at 206-296-6060 to schedule a time to speak individually.
