Applying for Financial Aid can be a complex and confusing process. The Financial Aid Staff are available to offer any assistance you may need, Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm, Friday 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. We are located in the John Mantle Student Center.
We are pleased to announce 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.
A custom school link will be included in the introductory communication requesting you access Verification Gateway. You will need to do the following*:
*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 Standard Time at 1 (888) 374-8427 or by email at VGCS@inceptia.org.
