  • Summer Nudging

    Posted by Heather Karstens at 12/6/2016

    Summer Nudging

    What is Summer Nudging?

    Summer Nudging is a program designed to help college-bound students successfully enter into college in the fall after high school graduation through weekly text messages, or "nudges." This is to help prevent "summer melt," which is described by the statistic that "1 in 5 college bound students fail to matriculate in the fall."

    Want to Sign Up?

    Text COLLEGE to 651-243-9980!

    Any student who intends to go to college can participate! Parents, guardians and counselors can sign up as well. We will be texting you in January-December 2017. Students can opt out at any time by texting, "STOP" or "CANCEL."

    What Do We Do?

    1. Send out weekly, individualized "nudges" January through December.
    2. Provide assistance to students through two-way messaging.
    3. Connect students to resources on campus such as Financial Aid, Residence Life and Counseling Services.
    4. Translate all Summer Nudging into Spanish.


    We provide the critical tools, support and guidance needed to combat Summer Melt and foster self-advocacy within college-bound students.
