Tiger Education Screening Intervention (TESI)

Tiger Education Screening Intervention (TESI) is an individual educational intervention program for all Auburn University students who have been found in violation of an alcohol or drug related policy or who may want to gain a better understanding of their substance use. The TESI program is designed to help students make better substance use decisions and to reduce their risks for substance-related harm.

TESI sessions are conducted by trained graduate-level facilitators who are supervised by a licensed clinician. Each student will meet individually with a TESI facilitator and receive personalized objective feedback based on questionnaires and assessments.   In a nonjudgmental environment, all sessions are kept confidential and no information will be disclosed without a student’s written consent.

There is a $125 fee for those students who are sanctioned to complete the program. The fee can be waived for any students who are considered a self-referral (are not coming because they are required or because they got into trouble, rather because they are concerned about their own use). Additionally, there is a no-show fee of $25 for a missed intake appointment and $10 for a missed follow up appointment. 

Students who are referred to TESI by Residence Life or Student Conduct may schedule a TESI intake appointment with their referring source. For students who are self-referral, they may schedule a TESI appointment by emailing tesi@auburn.edu.
