Award-Winning Online Video Service Improves Student Understanding of Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements, Creates Self-Service Efficiencies for Students and Staff, and is a Valuable Tool in Achieving Retention and Default Aversion Goals
BOULDER, CO – FATV, a leading supplier of customizable online video solutions for college financial aid offices, announced today a new addition to its online network of educational institutions using the GetSAP service.
Drury University (Springfield, MO) is the latest institution to take advantage of GetSAP, a customizable online service that transforms a school’s Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy into a highly engaging, interactive, online video educational experience.
“The launch of the GetSAP program has been extremely beneficial for our student population,” said Koree Dickson, Financial Aid Coordinator at Drury University. “Having the video sessions available has decreased the amount of questions our office receives on what Financial Aid Probation and SAP means.”
Dickson added: “We have not had any push-back from students on requiring the video session. We feel the use of video sessions help our students understand how to make progress, and is a great enhancement to our appeal process.”
“GetSAP enhances any school’s retention plan. By effectively communicating SAP requirements – both proactively and at the point when students are running into difficulty – GetSAP helps students stay on track towards their educational goals,” said Colleen MacDonald Krumwiede, Sr. VP of Innovations and Partners at FATV.
GetSAP is available across multiple platforms: online, mobile, and can be embedded directly on a school’s website. Video content, case studies, calculators and quizzes are customizable and are available on the following topics:
- Proactive SAP Communication
- At-Risk Student Intervention
- Explaining the Appeals Process
- 150% Rule
- Pell Lifetime Eligibility
- State-based programs
