Kirkwood Community College Chooses Financial Aid TV

Online Video Service Reduces Costs, Saves Time, Improves Counseling and Outreach

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Financial Aid TV (FATV), a leading supplier of online video counseling and outreach solutions for college financial aid offices, announced today a new addition to its online network.

Kirkwood Community College (Cedar Rapids, IA) is the latest school to take advantage of Financial Aid TV's customized online video counseling and outreach solutions.

"Within the first month of using FATV we had nearly 500 hits," said Nick Borders, Financial Aid Advisor at Kirkwood Community College. "The videos are easy to use and understand and have helped free up staff during our busiest months."

"In these tough economic times, schools are being challenged to do more with less," said Paul Burke, VP of Sales for Financial Aid TV. "FATV is an affordable turn-key solution designed to assist all schools, from traditional brick and mortar institutions to online distance education."

Added Burke: "Students often times do not read the materials put out by financial aid offices. Our service connects with students in a 'YouTube' format that they can relate to."

Schools are deploying FATV in a variety of ways, including:

  • To Increase FA Applications
  • To Improve Default Aversion Efforts
  • To Improve Customer Service
  • To Improve Financial Literacy Efforts
  • To Reduce Student Wait Times
  • To Reduce Student Phone Calls
  • To Expand Counseling Reach
