As  we  notified  students  earlier  this  summer,  the  University  of  the  Arts  is  requiring  each  member  of  the  first-­‐
year  class  to  complete  two  online,  interactive  programs  aimed  at  helping  students  think  critically  about  their  
activities  and  behaviors.    (Transfers and Graduate students are NOT required to complete
these courses).    Below  are  the  instructions  for  completing  both  the  AlcoholEdu  for  College  and  the  E-­‐
Checkup  To  Go  programs.    Failure  to  complete  the  course(s)  is  considered  a  violation  of  the  University’s  
Student  Code  of  Conduct  and  will  result  in  a  $250  fine.    Additional  answers  to  questions  can  be  found  online  
CONFIDENTIALITY:  All  survey  responses  are  strictly  confidential;  the  school  will  only  receive  information  
about  the  student  body  as  whole  and  will  never  see  individual  students’  answers.  You  can  feel  confident  that  
providing  truthful  answers  –  no  matter  what  they  are  –  will  not  put  you  at  any  risk  for  repercussions.      
  Part  1:  Approximately  2  hours  and  must  be  completed  by  September  21,  2010

digit  Student  ID  number,  which  you  will  find  on  your  Student  ID  card.  If  you  do  not  enter  your  official  
Student  ID,  you  will  not  receive  credit  for  taking  this  course.  
5. At  the  conclusion  of  the  course,  you  will  need  to  take  the  test  (you  will  need  to  get  a  75%  on  to  pass  the  
course  and  receive  credit)  and  Survey  2.
