NCHA survey

Did you receive an email asking you to participate in a health survey? Most of our AU students were invited to participate in the National College Health Assessment survey (NCHA) a couple of weeks back. This is a legitimate survey and we do ask you to consider participating in the survey. It is the first time that Athabasca University has participated in the NCHA survey and it will provides us with a clearer picture on the health of our students.

Participate in the NCHA Survey

Participants would have received an email similar to this:

This is an invitation to participate in the National College Health Assessment. As an Athabasca University student, you can help us understand the mental health characteristics of our students. Athabasca University is evaluating the mental health needs of our undergraduate and graduate students, and your answers to these questions can help provide direction to our student services.

Your participation is voluntary and your responses are completely confidential. The survey will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. All AU students who complete this survey will be entered into a random draw to win a selection of AU apparel.

Link to the Survey in Your Email

You would have received a link to the survey as well as some information regarding the protection of the data and the confidentiality of the survey itself. It also provided contact information (advising) should you have any further questions.

AU thanks you for your participation.
