To sign up - text the word DEADLINES to 46786.
Note: Spring Semester 2011 BYU-Idaho experimented with sending a text message to all students on campus concerning the full semester course drop deadline. This caused a 150% increase in dropped courses that day compared to previous semesters. It also contributed to a significant decrease in petition requests by students to remove W grades from their transcript.
