TNCC is piloting a new text message service to help students complete their degrees. A pilot study TNCC conducted found that these text messages increased the share of students that continued in college and graduated.
Throughout the semester, participating students will receive text messages from a TNCC advisor, Lakeisha Mayes, to help students choose courses that help them complete their program of study, maximize how much financial aid they receive if they apply, and connect to helpful campus resources. Lakeisha will respond individually to questions and messages she receives from students. This is a great opportunity to get personalized advising at TNCC from the convenience of your phone!
Thomas Nelson Mobile Support is a pilot program. If successful, it will grow to serve more students in future terms.
For questions, please contact Lakeisha Mayes at MayesL@tncc.edu.
This is a pilot program, so you may not receive texts immediately. You can stop messages at any time by replying “STOP.” We will never ask for personal information, including social security number or financial information. Never send confidential information over text. Standard messaging and data rates may apply.
