After completing the B.A.R.T. survey, PRINT the page that includes your CONFIRMATION number and bring that number with you. Your confirmation number will be used for tracking purposes only. While some participants have found it helpful to discuss the meaning of their results during the CHOICES group, you will NOT be required to share the results of the assessment.

HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE CHOICES:
All specific information disclosed during the CHOICES group remains confidential and will not be shared with Residence Life or any other XU personnel. The only information shared is that you have successfully completed the program. Successful completion includes the following elements:
1. Arrived on time, with B.A.R.T. Confirmation #, and XU AllCard.
2. Stayed for entire duration of the meeting.
3. Respectfully participated. While the amount of information you disclose will be left up to you, all members must be respectful of the group process and purpose. Individuals who are uncooperative and/or act in a way that undermines or reduces the quality of the group will be asked to leave. This will be classified as a failure to comply and will have the same monetary and discipline consequences as failure to attend.
