College of Western Idaho Begins 7th Year with FATV's GetAnswers Service

Award-Winning Online Video Service Improves Student Understanding, Effectiveness of Customer Service, and is a Valuable Tool in Achieving Retention and Default Aversion Goals

BOULDER, CO – FATV, a leading supplier of online video solutions for college financial aid offices, announced today a milestone for one of its school partners.

College of Western Idaho (Nampa, ID) is beginning its 7th year of using GetAnswers, the award-winning, customized, online video communications and outreach solution by FATV.

“FATV’s recent redesign of their video portal shows their ongoing commitment to student knowledge and empowerment when it comes to financial aid topics. Information posted in our student newsletter about the redesign and how easy it is to get answers, equated to a 300%+ increase in usage,” said Nicole McMillin, Director of Financial Aid at College of Western Idaho.

“By using the GetAnswers service, schools never miss a chance to communicate with their students. Financial aid videos answer student questions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Key topics such as eligibility, applying, verification, and Satisfactory Academic Progress are available, and all videos are available in Spanish as well,” said Kathleen Roebuck, VP of School Partnerships for FATV.

FATV is available across multiple platforms: online, mobile, campus-based signage systems and interactive learning modules, and in multiple languages. Last year, over 4 million online videos were watched via the GetAnswers service. Schools choose FATV to:

  • Improve Customer Service
  • Reduce Phone Calls
  • Reduce Wait Times
  • Help Achieve Retention Goals thru Enhanced SAP Outreach Communications
  • Improve Default Aversion Efforts
