Verification. A necessity and potential barrier that can cause anxiety for students, their families and financial aid administrators everywhere. These extra steps can test the limits of any financial aid office and can lead to the unfortunate delay of educational goals for students who become overwhelmed in the process. Verification Gateway started as an idea to make the verification process less daunting for students and parents and more efficient and secure for the school.

SOLVING THE PROBLEM Verification. A necessity and potential barrier that can cause anxiety for students, their families and financial aid administrators everywhere. These extra steps can test the limits of any financial aid office and can lead to the unfortunate delay of educational goals for students who become overwhelmed in the process. Verification Gateway, or VG, started as an idea to make the verification process less daunting for students and parents and more efficient and secure for schools.
Verification Gateway pairs a fully-automated process with the flexibility of optional personal interaction, to offer the industry’s smartest verification solution.
FRIENDLIER & ALWAYS AVAILABLE We tackled automation and set our sights on developing a solution to intuitively take students and parents through the process on an always-available virtual platform with less frustration, no paper and fewer questions. Verification Gateway is an intuitive, automated solution to gather information and documentation required to verify students for Federal Financial Aid. The system utilizes smart technology that includes deploying progressive rules to automatically approve verifications or if a manual review is required, separates those verifications for further review.

BETTER FOR STUDENTS We knew communication was a key to keeping students engaged throughout the process because students that could have bright futures were being lost because their uncertain financial lives are keeping them from reaching their potential. Even with the proposed upcoming verification selection change, low-income and minority students are disproportionately impacted by verification for whom financial aid is their only gateway to higher education. If they only could get there. Verification Gateway intuitively guides students and parents through the verification process. With easy-to-follow alerts and task lists, they know what documentation is needed, when it’s due and when they’ve completed their requirements. If clarification is needed, there are helpful tips along the way and the option for personal contact.
38% average lift in completed verifications among VG users. 25% of students create their VG account within 24 hours of receiving the first email from Inceptia.
