New number and access code for college planning texting service

February 17, 2021

Mapping Your Future encourages high school counselors, parents, and students or anyone interested in valuable college planning tips to sign up for its new texting service.

To sign up, text #SDMYFUTURE to 81411.

Mapping Your Future sends 2-3 informational texts per month and provides college planning and financial aid reminders and tips to help South Dakotans.

This new service replaces the previous texting service, which used the access code #myfuture. The change to the new service was required to comply with regulations on informational texting programs. Due to this change, the previously published texting bookmarks are now obsolete. Watch for more information about revised bookmarks being available in the future. 

If you have any questions or suggestions, contact Mapping Your Future at or 1-800-374-4072.
