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.

Atlanta Metropolitan College is the latest school to take advantage of Financial Aid TV’s customized online video counseling and outreach solutions.

“The Financial Aid Office at Atlanta Metropolitan College launched FATV in July,” said Alicia Scott, Director of Financial Aid at Atlanta Metropolitan College. “It has reduced phone calls and walk-ins to the Financial Aid Office.”

Scott added: “The office has found that many questions can be answered via the web; however students are often overwhelmed by reading the abundance of information available. Financial Aid TV was launched in order to answer general student inquiries.”<
“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
