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.
Schoolcraft College (Livonia, MI) is the latest school to take advantage of Financial Aid TV's customized online video counseling and outreach solutions.
"Schoolcraft College purchased FATV for its uniqueness in providing students with 24/7 answers to questions concerning the various student aid programs and application process," said Regina Mosley, Office Director of Financial Aid.
"We have had over 400 questions answered by FATV since coming on board in June, 2009. We are excited to get the word out to the Campus that this learner-centered service is available," said Mosley.
"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
