LDCC and Inceptia Partnership
Inceptia, a division of National Student Loan Program (NSLP), is a nonprofit organization committed to helping schools launch brilliant futures for their students. Inceptia achieves this goal by offering effective and uncomplicated financial aid management solutions in such key areas as default prevention, verification, and financial education. Learn more at Inceptia.org.
LDCC is pleased to announce that we have established a partnership with Inceptia for the processing of student verification files. This partnership will expedite the federal verification process by utilizing the Verification Gateway online portal. If your 2022-23 FAFSA application is selected for verification by the U.S Department of Education, you will receive an introductory email to the email address you provided on the FAFSA. If no email was provided, you will receive an introductory postcard.
In order to complete the verification process through Inceptia’s Verification Gateway, students and dependent student’s parents must create an account once you are notified to do so. Any communication received from Inceptia is legitimate; therefore we ask that you respond in a timely manner to all request from Inceptia. Failure to setup your account or submit requested documentation may delay the processing of your federal financial aid. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Office of Financial Aid at your respective campus.
Beginning with the 2022/2023 Aid Year, we are in the process of converting our forms to Dynamic Forms. These forms will not need to be uploaded in the Financial Aid Upload. Once you complete these forms, they will come directly to us in the Dynamic Forms Portal. We will notate next to the form if it is a Dynamic Form.
