Top Recommendations

The following recommendations are the top ways to effectively increase the visibility of the content in your video portal and thus immediately maximize its value. Videos can be embedded either as ‘Responsive’ (mobile-friendly) or in various fixed sizes. You can also use a thumbnail that uses a pop-up window, which can be a great space-saver on your web page. 

Financial Aid Homepage

  • Consider adding a graphic linked to your video portal. Keep the graphic available as the viewer visits different pages so that answers are always just one click away. Choose from our available graphics, which include the examples below. Graphics can be customized with your school’s colors upon request:

Financial Aid Policies

  • On the Financial Aid Policies or Satisfactory Academic Progress page, you could add the What does SAP stand for? video in the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) playlist.


  • On the Grants page, consider adding the Grant Programs playlist on this page. 



  • On the Scholarships page, consider adding the Scholarships playlist on this page. 

Work Study

Applying for Financial Aid

VA Benefits

Financial Literacy

Need More Ideas?

As you consider where to add features and how to prioritize the additions, we encourage you to consider the following:

  • Draw inspiration from themes you see in frequently asked questions from your students and parents. Embed videos on your main web pages that address these concerns. 

  • Ensure that the video portal is consistently represented across your website, even if it’s simply through a graphic linked to your portal. The more visual it is for students, the more they will come to trust the resource as a way to get questions answered.
