BOULDER, CO – FATV, a leading supplier of content and technology solutions for college financial aid offices, announced today a new addition to its online network.

University of Kansas (Lawrence, KS) is beginning its 8th year of using GetAnswers, the award-winning, customized, online video communications and outreach solution by FATV.

“FATV provides answers to financial aid questions in a format students often prefer. FATV is very responsive in developing new videos, addressing issues that arise such as the DRT outage,” said Stephanie Covington, Associate Director for Financial Aid & Scholarships at the University of Kansas.

Covington continued, “Playlists are in English and Spanish and address a wide variety of topics from completing the FAFSA to repayment information. FATV provides students, parents, counselors and others quick and easy access to financial aid information, when they need it, anytime, day or night.”

“By using the GetAnswers service, schools never miss a chance to communicate with their students.  Financial aid videos answer student questions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  Key topics such as eligibility, applying, verification, and Satisfactory Academic Progress are available, and all videos are available in Spanish as well,” said Kathleen Roebuck, VP of School Partnerships for FATV.

FATV is available across multiple platforms: online, mobile, campus-based signage systems and interactive learning modules, and in multiple languages. Last year, over 4 million online videos were watched via the GetAnswers service. Schools choose FATV to:
