Verification is a process by which the U.S. Department of Education requires an institution to verify certain parts of your FAFSA. The items ICC must verify depend on how you complete the FAFSA and the level of verification for which you have been selected. 

Federal Verification Process

We are pleased to announce we have established a partnership with Inceptia to expedite the federal verification process for Independence Community College. Verification Gateway (VG) from Inceptia is an online portal to guide students and parents through verification.

If your FAFSA application is selected for verification by the U.S Department of Education, you will receive an email from, or postcard from Inceptia, containing Independence Community College’s unique website link to start the verification process.

We encourage you to begin the verification process within 7 days of receiving notification
from Verification Gateway to ensure you receive your financial aid in time for payments.
Failure to complete the verification process could result in the delay or denial of your financial aid.

Follow these steps to complete your verification.

  • Access our school’s unique website link in the email from or listed below.
  • Create your account and choose preferences for text messages and e-signatures.
  • Complete your Task List.
  • Confirm your signature and review your information.
