If you arrive for your appointment later than 25 minutes after your scheduled appointment, you will need to reschedule an appointment to meet with a counselor.

Deadlines & Workshop Scheduling

My schedule does not fit with when Workshop 2 is offered. Can I go straight to a 1:1 meeting instead?
No, you cannot. Students need to attend the next step identified after completing eCHECKUP TO GO. If you attend what you were not directed to you will need to complete the correct step for your sanction to be considered complete.

IMPACT workshop dates/times conflict with my class and/or work schedule. What can I do?
Workshop classes are only offered at the dates & times listed, if other obligations arise you need to change your schedule accordingly.

I cannot meet the 14, or 30 day deadline stated in my sanction letter. What can I do?
The Office of Student Conduct assigns and monitors deadlines. They can be reached at conduct@wsu.edu, 509-335-4532, or in-person at Lighty 360.

Tips for Printing

Printing Locations

If you are printing from certain locations on the WSU Campus, you may be limited to only a certain number of pages (e.g. only 10 pages). This may limit your ability to print out the full packet for IMPACT as the IMPACT Alcohol packets are 14 pages and the IMPACT Cannabis packets are 9 pages.  If you do not have a complete packet printed for the second workshop, you will not be admitted. 

Printing Your Assessment Results

When you have completed the survey, you will see a page similar to the one below. Note: under “IMPACT Next Steps”, you may see “you need to attend IMPACT class 2” OR “you need to attend an educational meeting”.

In order to print the entire feedback packet, click either “PRINT RESULTS” in the shaded box on the right hand side of the page or the “PRINT OUT” link under step 1 (see picture below).

DO NOT use the following links to print your packet. These links (see picture below) do not print the correct packet.

When you have clicked the appropriate link to print your packet, it is important that you have page 8 in the packet (see below). This is the page that instructs you to attend a second workshop or a 1:1 meeting.  If the page with the Impact Next Steps section does not print, please return to your feedback and print this page separately. 

Logging Back In To Print

  • Log into the eCHECKUP TO GO sign-in page using the login and password you created at the time you took the assessment.
  • Select the assessment you wish to view. A new tab will open with the assessment results.
  • Select the “Resources” tab (located top-right)
