Sent your children off to college? Help those doing so this fall with your best off to college tip.

My tip - many colleges now send their alerts via text message. So if your student to be has a cell phone, make sure it is text capable without running their bill up.

Another tip - many colleges are also getting rid of dorm phones. So if your student doesn't have a cell phone, you might look into getting a prepaid or no contract phone for them. Because the schools do send alerts out via cell phone and text message.

I have a son and his wife that are "super seniors" this fall, so sending kids off to college has gotten old hat for us. Good luck to all the college mamas out there this year.
