SCC Improves Federal Verification Process for Students


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

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 Surry Community College’s unique website link to start the verification process.

“We encourage you to begin the verification process within seven 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,” said Andrea Simpson, Director of Financial Aid at SCC.

  • Create your account and choose preferences for text messages and e-signatures.
  • Complete your Task List.
