Verification Option

The Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO Program provides two ways to positively verify that a student has completed the program:

Electronic Verification of Completion

The Electronic Verification of Completion (EVC) is a FREE and optional "add-on" to the core eCHECKUP TO GO Program. The EVC provides subscribing institutions a way to positively verify that a student has completed the Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO.

  1. Students are prompted to begin the EVC on the "Resources" page of their Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO feedback (the last page). Students may begin the EVC only after reviewing all pages of their personalized feedback.
  2. EVC ScreenshotStudents provide their personal identifying information (i.e., name, campus identification number, and e-mail address) and select the specific and identified campus official to whom they want to send their verification.
  3. Students must also consent to complete the verification and send the verification via email.
  4. The student's verification is sent to the selected campus official via email.
  5. The campus official receiving the verification emails can also access our online, real-time administrative site to review, sort, and query their previously sent verifications.
  6. Working with their own IT staff, campuses can use their EVC data to create ways to automatically remove administrative holds and/or design follow-up communications with students.

Note: The EVC program does not transmit students’ responses to the Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO questions nor their confidential alcohol use profile. The EVC only verifies that a student completed the program.

Personal Reflections & Verification of Completion Program

The Personal Reflections & Verification of Completion Program (PRVC) is an optional "add-on" to the core eCHECKUP TO GO Program. The PRVC provides all the functionality of the Electronic Verification of Completion, but also provides students a guided opportunity to thoughtfully reflect on their personal drinking profile.

Given the research showing that the more time a student spends reflecting on his/her personal feedback, the more likely they are to make positive changes in their behavior (Dimeff and McNeely, 2000), and guided by Motivational Interviewing and Social Norms theories and research (Walters and Baer, 2006); the questions we have designed are intended to minimize resistance, highlight internal discrepancies, and maximize thoughtful contemplation of personal choices and motivation to change.

  1. Students are prompted to begin the PRVC on the "Resources" page of their Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO feedback (the last page). Students may begin the PRVC only after reviewing all pages of their personalized feedback.
  2. Students provide their personal identifying information (i.e., name, campus identification number, and e-mail address) and select the specific and identified campus official to whom they want to send their verification.
  3. Students must also consent to complete the PRVC and send the PRVC via email.
  4. Next, the student is presented with questions designed to deepen their thoughtful examination of their personal choices and the social norms surrounding and influencing their use of alcohol. The specific questions the student is required to answer are determined by each individual student's unique Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO profile.
  5. After the student provides their responses to the selected PRVC questions, the student's PRVC is sent to the selected campus official via email.
  6. The campus official receiving the PRVC emails can also access our online, real-time administrative site to review, sort, and query their previously sent PRVC responses.
  7. Working with their own IT staff, campuses can use their PRVC data to create ways to automatically remove administrative holds and/or design follow-up communications with students.

Note: The PRVC program does not transmit students’ responses to the Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO questions nor their confidential alcohol use profile. The PRVC only verifies that a student completed the program and allows the campus offical to view students responses to the selected PRVC questions.
