Everyone is pretty busy these days - even high school students. Sometimes all it takes to help students complete a task is a gentle reminder - in a non-naggy sort of way.

To ensure they get the important college planning and financial aid reminders, Mapping Your Future offers texting service for South Dakota high school students, parents, and counselors.

Anyone can subscribe to the South Dakota Mapping Your Future texting service by texting #MYFUTURE to 41411 from a mobile phone. It is that easy!

Mapping Your Future will only send 1-2 messages per month to subscribers with tips for college planning, reminders about deadlines, and other important college information.

Mapping Your Future encourages you to subscribe to the texting service and to share information about this texting service with your students and parents. A bookmark is available to help you share the information. If you have any questions or suggestions, contact Cathy Mueller at or 940-497-0741.
