LARGO, Md.—Students receive financial aid information 24 hours, seven days a week, by accessing Financial Aid TV (FATV), an online video counseling service. The new peer-to-peer video format will make it easier for students to understand how to apply for financial aid. 

“FATV provides us with another way to communicate with students who are applying for aid,” said Sharon Hassan, director of financial aid. “Our investment in this new peer-to-peer video format will help them to achieve their completion goals,” she added.  

The outlet expands support services for students as they learn steps needed to apply for aid directly from their peers. Designed for the YouTube generation, FATV connects with students through short clips including “How do I know if I qualify for financial aid?" and "What is a Pell Grant?" 

Prince George’s Community College is one of seven institutions in Maryland offering FATV to students. For more information and to view FATV videos, visit
