You may be selected by the U.S. Department of Education or the NVCC Financial Aid Office for a process called verification. When selected for verification, your file will be considered incomplete until you submit requested documentation for our review.
Why is my file being verified?
There are several possibilities for being selected for verification. The following are the most common reasons for being selected:
- All students are selected randomly by the Federal Government.
- The FAFSA application has incomplete data.
- The FAFSA application has estimated or conflicting information on it.
- The IRS data retrieval option was not utilized when completing the FAFSA.
If selected, you'll receive an email from Inceptia's Verification Gateway. Log into the Gateway to get started with the process. If you get stuck, just call Verification Gateway Customer Service at 888-374-VGCS (8427).
If you are selected for verification or have any outstanding requirements, please submit them to Inceptia's Verification Gatewayas soon as possible.
Please note: if you are required to submit proof of HS completion, and/or verification of studdent identity and statement of educational purpose, these documents must be submitted to NVCC's Financial Aid Office.
Federal Verification Process
NVCC has established a partnership with Inceptia to expedite the federal verification process by utilizing theVerification Gateway 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 8/31/2019. 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 approve to e-sign.
- Access your Action List and begin the verification process (the list may consist of some combination of online forms and the request to upload specific documents to Verification Gateway).
*Dependent students that provided parental information on the FAFSA are required to have one parent 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.
If you have any questions about the verification process, please contact Inceptia, Monday through Friday from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm Central at 888-374-8427 or by email
