Mandatory Undergraduate Programs
All incoming and transfer undergraduate students are required to complete the following mandatory programs through Cougar Health Services during Week of Welcome:
- Green Dot. Students will learn about the power of bystander intervention and will be empowered to recognize and respond to situations that could be high risk for violence.
- Booze, Sex and Reality Checks. This workshop helps students transition into our university’s social experience and culture, including valuable education about substance use and sexual-decision making. First-year and transfer students under the age of 21 as of Aug. 1 (fall semester), and Jan. 1 (spring semester) are required to complete BSRC during their first semester at WSU.
- e-CHUG. This online, confidential survey allows students to receive personalized feedback about the impacts of alcohol and other drug use. First-year and transfer students under the age of 21 as of Aug. 1 (fall semester), and Jan. 1 (spring semester) are required to complete e-CHUG during their first semester at WSU.
Each program has unique components and steps required for completion. To receive more information about how to fulfill each requirement, please click on the links above.
When should I attend?
Incoming students will be able to register to attend mandatory programs during Week of Welcome. You will be able to sign up to receive text messages during your Alive! orientation to find out which mandatory programs you are required to complete and to receive instructions on how to register for these programs. If you did not sign up to receive text messages, you can register for your workshops online.
What happens if I miss the workshop I registered for?
If you miss the workshop time you registered for, you will be able to go to your confirmation email and click on the link to change your registration times.
What happens if I cannot attend?
If you do not complete your mandatory program(s) during Week of Welcome, a registration hold will be placed on your student account and prevent you from registering for classes next semester. However, you will be able to register for one of the limited make-up workshops starting in September. Registration instructions for make-up workshops will be made available here after Week of Welcome.
