Take the e-CHUG now



The e-CHUG (electronic Check-Up to Go) is an online option for students to use to gain insight into their relationship with alcohol. The e-CHUG is a brief assessment tool that takes about 5 minutes to complete. E-CHUG is self-guided, requires no face-to-face contact time with a counselor, and is completely anonymous.

When you access the e-CHUG, you are prompted to enter some demographic information and information on your personal alcohol use. After all information has been entered, you submit the form. The information you entered is processed and then compares your responses to national and local college norms. Then your personalized feedback is displayed in a standard format.

The c-CHUG's individualized feedback provides students with useful information on such items as:

  • Calorie intake
  • Peak Blood Alcohol Concentration
  • Income spent on alcohol
  • Norm comparisons
  • Tolerance levels
  • Genetic risk score
  • Personal results and explanations
  • Referral information

The e-CHUG is also a simple way for students to find out if a professional consultation might be useful. If, after completing the c-CHUG and receiving your feedback, you would like to speak with a counselor about your concerns, call the SVSU Counseling Center at 989-964-7078 and ask to talk to someone. Or, you may come by the SVSU Counseling Center, which is located in Curtiss 112 to schedule an individual appointment.

Your participation in the e-CHUG is voluntary. You may withdraw from participating at any time.

No individual information is kept or provided to Saginaw Valley State University.
