Fall 2021 through Summer 2022 Verification

We are pleased to announce that as of July 13, 2021 verification of most 2021-22 FAFSAs has been waived by the U.S. Department of Education. Therefore, students will no longer be required to submit documentation to verify income or houshold size information. Students selected for a very narrow type of verification to verify Identity and collect a Statement of Educational Purpose will still be required to complete that verification. Students selected for this very narrow type of verification will receive notice from ICC asking them to complete the Verification of Identity and Statement of Educational Purpose form. You can read more about the announcement from the Department of Education about the waiver of verification HERE


Summer 2021 Verification

Verification of 2020-21 FAFSAs is still required. 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 for Summer 2021

We are pleased to announce we have established a partnership with Inceptia to expedite the federal verification process for Independence Community College through August 6, 2021. Verification Gateway (VG) from Inceptia is an online portal to guide students and parents through verification. If your 2020-21 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

Failure to complete the verification process could result in the delay or denial of your financial aid.
