Online Video Service Improves Student Understanding, Effectiveness of Customer Service, and is a Valuable Tool in Achieving Default Aversion Goals

BOULDER, CO -- Financial Aid TV (FATV), a leading supplier of online video solutions for college financial aid offices, announced today a new addition to its online network.

"The University of Houston-Downtown has found Financial Aid TV to be a great service for both our students and prospective students," said Rob Sheridan, Executive Director of Financial Aid. "Now our students can access general financial aid counseling 24/7 which saves them time as well as allows our staff to be more productive."

Sheridan added: "Since UH-D is converting from FFELP to Direct Lending we have found FATV's flexibility to be great, allowing us to present specific UH-D's FAQs concerning the conversion. UH-D has found FATV to be another great tool for the institution, its students and the Financial Aid Office."

"FATV is a great resource for schools. With so many schools in transition mode from FFELP to DL, there has never been such a greater need for the clear communications supplied by FATV," said Paul Burke, VP of Sales at Financial Aid TV.
