Verification Gateway and PJ Advisor

Federal Verification Process

We are pleased to announce we have established a partnership with Inceptia to expedite the federal verification process for the University of Texas at Tyler. 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 the University of Texas at Tyler’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 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.

PJ Advisor and Special Circumstances Process

We are pleased to announce we have established a partnership with Inceptia to expedite the financial aid appeal process by utilizing the PJ Advisor online portal. PJ Advisor is an accessible, intuitive tool that will guide you through the process to request a professional judgment/appeal.

What Happens Next?

You may access PJ Advisor here. You (or a parent, spouse, or legal guardian) will need to do the following*:

  1. Create a secure user name and password.
  2. Select your dependency status as reported on the FAFSA.
  3. Answer the pre-screening questions and select your appeal category.
  4. Explain your situation in detail, upload supporting documentation, and submit.
  5. Print, sign, and upload the signature page.

*Dependent students that provided parental information on the FAFSA are required to have one parent signature on the signature page once all documentation has been submitted.

Upon receipt of all required documents, Inceptia will conduct a preliminary review to ensure the submission is accurate and complete. You will be notified via email if there are any questions or if any additional documentation is required. Once the submission is verified as complete, it will be sent to your school’s financial aid office for final review and determination. Your school will contact you with the results.   


If you have any questions about the appeal process, please contact Inceptia’s PJ Advisor Customer Service Monday through Friday from 8am-5pm Central at 888.302.7527 or email PJCS@Inceptia.org.
