Complete Survey=Possible MONEY!!

The ACHA-NCHA is a survey designed to assess student health behaviors in order to provide better services and support for ASU students. You benefit by knowing that you have assisted in providing accurate information regarding health/wellness behaviors on our campus. The information will be used to develop wellness programs and services for ASU.

The NCHA-Web is completed online via the Internet. On October 9 and October 16, you received a unique link to your ASU student email account, prompting you to complete the survey. Please do not delete this! This is for you to click on to access the survey.

The survey will be open during the window of October 9, 2017 to November, 17, 2017. You can complete it anytime during this time frame. We are trying for the highest number of survey responses in the institution’s history…help us get there!

All students who submit a survey will be automatically entered into a random drawing to win one of four Amazon gifts certificates. The gift certificate amounts offered are $200.00 (two available) and $100.00 (two available).

The departments responsible for dissemination of the ACHA are The ASU Counseling Center and The Office of Title IX. You may contact Lis Tomlin at or Ana Guevara at if you have questions or concerns about the survey.
