A mandatory online course at the University of Southern California (USC) asks students to disclose the number of sexual encounters they have had over the past three months and teaches students to ask for consent by saying “how far would you be comfortable going?” and “would you like to try this with me?”
In an email obtained by Campus Reform, students were told they must complete the Title IX training in order to register for courses in the spring.
“This course is mandatory, and you must complete it by February 9, 2016. If you do not complete the training by this date you will receive a registration hold until the training is complete,” the email stated.
Many universities require students to complete a course on Title IX, but some students at USC are worried the online course they are required to take is too intrusive.
