Federal Verification Process

Federal Verification Process

We are pleased to announce we have established a partnership with Inceptia to expedite the federal verification process for Canisius 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 @email, or postcard from Inceptia, containing Canisius 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 our school’s unique website link in the email from @email 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.
