Over the last twenty years, Ocelot (previously FATV) has taken several forms both in name and technology. From creating financial aid publications, to producing easy-to-digest videos, to our AI student engagement platform, Ocelot has not just kept up with the times, but strived to move higher education forward by always maintaining the same mission - making a better life more accessible.

The growth of AI is empowering financial aid departments to do just that for those that matter the most - your students. AI-powered tools such as chatbots, live chat, and SMS text campaigns are proving an affordable way to transform the way financial aid departments engage with students to increase FAFSA completions, reduce service load for administrators, and free up critical resources that make your department more impactful.

View our on-demand webinar featuring financial aid leaders Jennifer Achan of Bakersfield College and Nick Valdivia of CSU Long Beach as they shared their success stories and discussed how AI has helped solidify their institution’s student engagement strategy by:

  • Starting more conversations to drive enrollment and retention
  • Transforming service and support from 9-5 to 24/7/365
  • Removing barriers and clearing the path to student success
