Fullerton College Increases Staff Reach and Capacity with FATV’s GetSAP Service

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 that its GetSAP service has increased Fullerton College’s capacity to deliver Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) counseling sessions to students in order to meet growing demand.

In addition to increasing capacity, Fullerton College also uses GetSAP to enhance and improve the SAP counseling experience to provide more examples of how SAP works and better connect students to campus resources.

infographicWhen students at Fullerton College were given the choice between in-person and online counseling using GetSAP in the first semester of use, 761 students completed the GetSAP online sessions.  This saved Fullerton College Financial Aid staff from conducting over 21 SAP in-person counseling sessions and freed up staff to focus on more individual student needs.  Based on results, Fullerton moved to 100% online GetSAP counseling for appeals the following semester.

“GetSAP transforms a school’s Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy into a highly engaging, interactive, online video educational experience.  GetSAP can be used as a proactive tool, and also when students run into difficulty meeting SAP requirements.  GetSAP is optimized for connecting SAP to retention objectives and tracking student learning outcomes (SLOs),” said Damon Vangelis, CEO of FATV.
