Retention texting examples

Checking in during the semester is a great way to continue to build relationships. It provides a great opportunity for students to surface any concerns and connect with staff.

Registering for classes is always a process, but first-year students may need more guidance. Be proactive and reach out to students who have academic holds on their accounts or need additional resources around course registration.

Improve your retention rates by engaging your students and keeping them active on campus. Remind students about upcoming activity fairs, advising appointments, and other events that improve engagement.

Hi Sara. It’s your advisor, Jeff. It’s the start of the new semester so I wanted to check in and see how you’re feeling. Anything I can help with?
I actually am having a hard time finding campus activities that I enjoy.
That's understandable. I can help with that. You can call 800-555-5555 to set up an appointment so we can review some ideas.
Thank you. I will set up an appointment.
Hi Sara! Reminder that course registration opens on Monday at 7am. Did you know you have an academic hold on your account?
I did not.
That’s okay. I can help with that. Stop by my office today or tomorrow, and we can take care of it.
Thanks. I will stop by today.
Hi Sara. Are you ready for midterms next week? We have lots of study tips and guides for de-stressing here: Do you want to connect with a tutor?
Yes, I'd like to find a tutor.
