Text Messaging Platform for Higher Education

Students don’t read emails or answer calls, but they do respond to texts. TextUs is a flexible, easy-to-use two-way SMS platform for higher education. Get maximum response and ultimately, reach students, parents and teachers where they already are – on their phones.

How it Works

Upload all faculty and student contact information

Create groups to easily send mass text messages out to staff or students about emergencies, events, etc.

Respond quickly and easily 1:1 to any concerns

Keep everyone on campus informed!

Grab Attention with Rich Media

Stand out in students and staff’s busy inboxes by adding images, videos, GIFs, or PDFs to your messages with Campaigns Pro. Increase registrations, event sign ups or other activities with branded links and A/B test your messages to see what your students are responding to best.

Keep Faculty Efficient with Automation

Automate text message replies based on keywords for common questions like financial aid, registration information or emergency response with Keywords – so that your staff can stay focused on other tasks at hand.. Keywords also gives you the flexibility of quickly creating follow-up campaigns based on keyword responses for a more productive workflow.

 

“Because TextUs is so user-friendly, multiple other departments have already jumped on board and adopted the platform, too. It’s been invaluable for keeping engaged with current students, answering their questions, and staying on the ball.”

– Clay Wyllia, NorthWest Arkansas Community College
