On behalf of Rose State College, Workplace Answers will be delivering an email to all first time enrolled students at Rose State College informing them that they must complete the federally mandated online Sexual Misconduct training.

Students will be able to complete the training via a log-on as directed by Workplace Answers. Students will have the ability to log-in and log-out to the training as needed and save all completed work. The training should take approximately 45 to 50 minutes to complete.

Once the training is completed, students are required to either email a copy of the certificate of completion to the Dean of Students at tklepper@rose.edu or print out a copy of the certificate and submit it to the Dean of Students in the Student Services Building, Room 209.

Students may contact the Dean of Students at (405) 736-0355 or via email at tklepper@rose.edu for questions or concerns regarding the mandated Title IX, VAWA, and the Clery Act training.
