Our mission is to support schools as they launch brilliant futures for students, armed with the knowledge to become financially responsible citizens. Since 1986, we have helped more than two million students at 5,500 schools reach their higher education dreams. Each year, we help more than 160,000 students learn how to pay for college, borrow wisely, resolve their delinquency issues, and repay their student loan obligations. Our solutions are designed to support student success by helping financial aid administrators maximize resources, so they can spend more time focusing on students. More information at


Federal Verification Process

We have established a partnership with Inceptia to expedite the federal verification process by utilizing the Verification Gateway (VG) online portal. If your FAFSA application is selected for verification by the U.S Department of Education, you will receive an introductory email to the email address you provided on the FAFSA. If no email was provided, you will receive an introductory postcard. The postcard will have our school logo along with Inceptia’s, so you will know it is official. Please note the deadline for submitting these documents is July 1, 2018. Failure to provide the requested documents could result in the delay or denial of financial aid.


What Happens Next?

A custom school link will be included in the introductory communication requesting you access Verification Gateway. You will need to do the following*:

  • Confirm your identity (authentication).
  • Create a secure user name and password.
  • Decide if you want to receive text messages and e-sign your submission.
  • Access your Task List and begin the verification process (the list may consist of somecombination of online forms and the request to upload specific documents to VG).

*Dependent students that provided parental information on the FAFSA are required to have oneparent also authenticate and create an account. This parent will be required to e-sign or provide an ink signature once all documentation has been submitted.

Upon receipt of all required documents, Inceptia will begin the verification process. Students will be notified if there are any questions or if any additional documentation is required via email, text or postcard. Once verification has been completed, the student and our school will be notified.
