Navigating the college application process can be tough. There are a lot of deadlines to keep track of, and the information isn't always easy to find, so a new texting service from the Indiana Youth Institute is hoping to make it easier.
Parents or students can sign up for texts with reminders about things like ACT and SAT deadlines, scholarship information, or financial aid deadlines.
The texts are targeted to students’ grade levels, beginning any time after age 13. Each age group will receive 3-4 texts per month.
To sign up, just text "grad" and all four digits of your graduation year to 69979. (Example: grad2013)
Parents can sign up for multiple students and grades.
