The First Lady’s Reach Higher and Better Make Room is a campaign regarding a free college access and success tool for high school seniors, current college students and students who have incurred student loan debt.
The program is called Up Next.
It's a free texting program that sends students reminders, information, and encouragement about college entrance exams, applying to a broad range of colleges and universities, financial aid, transitioning to college, navigating new cultural environments, and making informed decisions about initial borrowing and repayment options for student loans.
This is an excellent research-based, life changing tool.
So, here’s how Up Next works:
Students text-in on their cell phone to sign up for Up Next, and then it will ask them simple questions that help tailor the text messages for them and their journey to and through college.
Up Next will then guide them over time through all the steps for enrolling in and completing college, sending reminders, information, and encouragement. The automated texts cover topics like taking college entrance exams, applying to a broad range of colleges and universities as well as for financial aid, transitioning to college and navigating new cultural environments, and making informed decisions about initial borrowing and repayment options for student loans. Some students will even receive free, one-on-one college advising from real-life college advisors via text message. Life just got a whole lot easier.
All they have to do is text the word COLLEGE to 44044. It takes less than 10 seconds!
Better Make Room takes it from there, walking them through the college process from start to finish using Up Next.
