e-Checkup is an interactive, confidential web survey that allows you to enter information about your drinking patterns and receive personalized feedback about your alcohol use. It enables you to compare your drinking patterns to other college students, gives you accurate information about drinking norms, and discusses individual behaviors and helpful strategies whether you choose to drink or not.

If completing eCheckup as a new UW Student going through Advising & Orientation:

  1. Complete eCheckup in one sitting; go through all INPUT and FEEDBACK pages. On the final FEEDBACK page, click “Verify Completion,” and follow the on-screen instructions. Nothing you enter into the program is tied to your verification; it remains separated from any personal identifiers.
  2. If you do not complete the program and the verification at the end, you may be required to re-complete.

Where did it come from?

The program is individually tailored to each campus & community and can be used with students at both the individual and population-levels.

Why do all incoming new students take it?

eCHECKUP TO GO meets the Federal compliance guidelines for Drug Free Schools and Community Act and is required at UW for all incoming UW Students through First Year Programs Orientation in partnership with LiveWell: Center for Student Advocacy Training and Education.
