As the second semester approaches, it is easy to lose track of what needs to be taken care of prior to registration. This is why the University of Wisconsin-Stout Alcohol and Other Drug Education Program staff wants to help remind all first-year students that completing e-Chug is required to register for second semester classes.
What is e-Chug?
Beginning this academic school year, UW-Stout will implement a program named “e-Chug” for all first-year students. e-Chug is an online tool utilized to help educate you about your personal alcohol consumption. It provides confidential and individualized feedback for you to use. Your results are not visible to anyone but yourself.
This educational tool is provided as part of UW-Stout’s Campus Alcohol Education and Enforcement Plan for 2011 – 2012, meant to help keep the student body educated and informed. The eight easy steps are listed below.
Go to: www.uwstout.edu/aod
1- Click on “e-Chug” under quick links (upper right-hand side).
2- After you begin, you will be provided with a user ID; keep a record of this number for future access.
3- Complete the e-Chug questions.
4- When you finish, e-Chug will provide individualized feedback regarding your alcohol usage.
5- After reviewing your feedback, enter your information on the right-hand side of the webpage to receive your verification of completion.
6- Enter your information on the verification page. Under the “send my verification to” section, select “Jacob Bloom, AOD Program Coordinator.”
7- Check the “Accept Terms” box and submit.
8- Verification of submission will display.
The first semester can be challenging; taking care of your e-Chug requirement can make it less so. If you have any questions about the e-Chug requirement, speak with your advisor or call the counseling center at (715) 232-2468.
