Texting Service Helps Students Achieve College Degree

A new way to help Indiana students achieve a college degree can be found in their pocket.
A new way to help Indiana students achieve a college degree can be found in their pocket. A new texting service called "Trip to College Alerts" sends monthly text messages to students to prepare them for education after high school.

The alerts provide grade-specific information, ACT/SAT test dates, career assessments, scholarship information, and financial aid deadlines.

To join Trip To College Alerts, students should text the word "grad" and their graduation year to 69979. For example, a senior would text "grad2014" as one word, while a freshman would text "grad2017." Students must be 13 or older to join. Standard texting rates apply and students should have the permission of a parent or guardian to sign up.
