Federal Verification Process

We are pleased to announce we have established a partnership with Inceptia to expedite the federal verification process for Alvernia University. 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 Alvernia University’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 Alvernia's website link in the email from VGCS@inceptia.org 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.
  • Sign your account.

*If you are a dependent student, your parent also needs to create their own account and complete each of these steps.

The 2023-2024 verification process with Inceptia will begin March 1, 2023. If you would like to complete the verification process prior to this date, please contact the Office of Student Financial Services at 610-796-8201 or sfs@alvernia.edu to discuss the information you will need to provide and options on completing the process early.
