Georgia Northwestern Technical College Chooses 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 a new addition to its online network of educational institutions using the GetSAP service.
 
Georgia Northwestern Technical College (Rome, GA) 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.  
 
"FATV's GetSAP product was extremely easy to implement. With the attentive help from the FATV staff we created our custom GetSAP Center in just 9 weeks! The sessions combine case studies, videos, calculators and questions in order to provide robust content to engage our student population in a method in which they are familiar, allowing us to reach more students on our campus,” said Stephen Andersen, Executive Director of Financial Aid at Georgia Northwestern Technical College.
 
Andersen added: “If we are able to retain 2 or 3 students by getting them back into Good Standing through the use of the GetSAP service, it will pay for itself. The addition of the GetSAP service to our toolkit of financial aid resources is proving to be an efficient and affordable way to educate our student population."
 
“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
