LSC to offer “Opt-in” Text Message Reminders for Students

“You missed the deadline.”

For college students, that’s one of the most terrifying phrases to hear.

That’s why Lake Superior College is now offering another way for students to stay on top of a few important college-wide deadlines: text messages.

Students can now opt-in to informational text messages regarding important dates and deadlines related to LSC.

A few samples:
• “Reminder: this is the final week to register for Fall semester 2014.”
• “Reminder: This is the last day to charge your books to financial aid.”
• “Reminder: The last day to drop/add is XX, XX”

Here’s how students can “opt-in” for text messages:
1.) Log in to your e-Services account.
2.) Click on “My Profile” in the upper right-hand corner.
3.) Click in the link “turn text messaging on or off.”
4.) Follow the on-screen instructions and be sure to complete all three steps. A green checkmark will appear next to the completed steps.
5.) You’ll receive a text within a few minutes that contains a PIN number. You’ll need to enter the PIN to activate your account.
6.) Click “Logout.” Now you’ll begin receiving important LSC information via text messages!
