Federal Verification Process with Inceptia
We are pleased to announce we have established a partnership with Inceptia to expedite the federal verification process for Manchester 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 VGCS@inceptia.org, or postcard from Inceptia, containing Manchester 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 listed below or through the email sent to you from VGCS@inceptia.org.
- Create your account and choose preferences for text messages and e-signatures.
- Complete your Task List.
- Confirm your signature and review your information.
- Sign your account.
*If you are a dependent student, your parent also needs to create their own account and complete each of these steps.

Inceptia, a division of National Student Loan Program (NSLP), is a nonprofit organization committed to offering effective and uncomplicated solutions in financial aid management, default prevention, and financial education. Our mission is to support schools as they launch brilliant futures for students, armed with the knowledge to become financially responsible citizens. Learn more at Inceptia.org.
Once forms are submitted for verification, Inceptia will review your file and make corrections to your FAFSA, if necessary. Results will then be sent to the Financial Aid office. From there, we can determine your eligibility and award you, if eligible. Review of documents takes approximately one week, although during peak registration periods, Inceptia’s review can require even more time. You will receive periodic emails informing you of your current status. This information can also be checked through your myCommNet account. Once you are awarded financial aid, your myCommNet account should display your award.
- Don’t assume that, once you complete the FAFSA, you are finished with the financial aid process.
- Dependent students, if selected for verification, need a parent to create an Inceptia account as well, just as with the initial FAFSA application.
- Typically, if your FAFSA is selected for verification, and you did not use the IRS Data Retrieval option or you changed the IRS data, you will be required to submit a copy of a signed tax return to Inceptia. If you do not have a copy of the tax return, you may request a tax transcript from the IRS and submit it for review. If you need to request your tax transcripts, you can visit the IRS website for either an electronic copy or to request one delivered to your home.
- Be sure to keep your email and mailing address up to date with the Registrar’s office. Check your student email account regularly as all student-specific notifications are sent to the student email account, not personal email.
- We only assume that you are interested in grants. Although work-study and loans are also part of financial aid, they must be applied for separately. Please consult with our Financial Aid office for further details regarding work-study and loans.
- Failure to submit completed verification documents to Inceptia can result in:
- Loss of financial aid for the semester or academic year
- Loan not being approved
- Future applications for aid not being processed
