EMAIL AND TEXT MESSAGING

IFSA offers the opportunity for website visitors to subscribe to an email campaign (~2-4 messages per month). Visitors who chose to supply an email address agree to periodic email messages from IFSA related to our programs, the application process, scholarships, deadlines and unique offerings. Subscription to the email notifications is not required to participate in IFSA programs and activities. Users may, at any time, unsubscribe from the email campaign.

IFSA offers a subscription text message program under the name of “IFSA Notifications and Alerts.”  You will receive recurring messages and message frequency varies.  Subscription to the program is not required for admission to IFSA programs.

You can join and opt in to receive IFSA Notifications and Alerts by texting JOIN to 49582.  After you provide us with your mobile phone number, you will have an opportunity to confirm or decline the service via a reply to an initial text message you receive from IFSA. By replying YES, you are completing your registration and agreeing that IFSA may send you recurring text messages (including SMS and MMS) to that phone number. T-Mobile is not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. Message and data rates apply.

Once registered, you may discontinue or opt out of our IFSA Notifications and Alerts by texting STOP to 49582.  Message and data rates apply.  By enrolling in IFSA Notifications and Alerts, you consent that following such a request to discontinue or opt out, you will receive one (1) final message from IFSA confirming that you have been inactivated in our system. Following such confirmation message, no additional text messages will be sent unless you re-activate your subscription.

For help, text HELP to 49582.  Message and data rates apply.
