Alcohol Education Course

You must complete an alcohol-education course that utilizes risk and harm reduction education before your return to campus in the fall. The course must cover learning about the risks involved with alcohol and other substance use and abuse, taking into account family history, cultural myths, body type, physical and psychological effects, and the law.

CHOICES

UCTC CHOICES is a one-session, two-hour class, in which students must complete a workbook and form before attending. You must register at least two weeks prior to the class date.

Next, you will receive a copy of the CHOICES workbook, a Self-Monitoring Form, and written instructions. You will then be assigned to a CHOICES class no sooner than two weeks from the date your registration. Complete the entire workbook and bring it to class completed. Also, complete a Self-Monitoring Form for any drinking episodes they have prior to the class. A fee of $25 will be charged to your account at the time of registration.
