City Vision University Enrollment Procedure
Enrolling in City Vision University
Before registering for a City Vision University course, you must fill out the enrollment form. Enrollment is open year round. There are several steps to follow, so you should begin at least one month prior to the beginning of the term in which you plan to begin your studies. If you plan to use federal student aid or another form of financial assistance, we strongly encourage you to start even earlier.
Please read the following steps carefully and complete each of them in order. If you need assistance, contact Student Services at (816) 960-2008.
Note that students are considered to be officially enrolled at City Vision University after having completed 4 courses. However, if students receive financial aid, then they are automatically considered to be officially enrolled.
Step One: Complete the Enrollment Form Online
If you are enrolling in the graduate program, click here to fill out the enrollment form and pay the $50 application fee.
- City Vision University students must meet the Academic Eligibility Requirements.
Therefore students must either self-certify their academic eligibility upon enrollment or else supply the appropriate documentation before beginning their fifth course. Students will not receive any Federal financial aid (Pell grants or loans) until their academic eligibility for aid has been confirmed by one of those methods.
If you have completed prior college work for which you wish to receive credit, this must be documented via official college transcripts. College transcripts must be sent directly from the institution. No faxes or photocopies will be accepted. You are responsible to inform the university if your transcripts will be sent with your maiden name on them instead of your current last name.
High school transcripts may typically be requested by doing a web search of your school districtand contacting them to order a transcript.. You can order college transcripts by doing a web search of your college name and the words "transcript request".
Transcripts should be mailed to:
Office of the Registrar
City Vision University
3101 Troost Ave. Suite 200
Kansas City MO 64109-1845
If you submit college transcripts, an official transcript evaluation will be done to determine the number of transfer credits that will be granted for previous college work.
Transfer credits will be awarded only if they are from institutions of higher learning that are accredited by a body that is recognized by the US Department of Education or the Council of Higher Education Accreditation (such as those listed here),
Non-U.S. institutions must have an accepted foreign equivalent at an institution listed in the International Handbook of Universities.
- You will need to e-mail a copy of a government-issued photo ID to registrar [at] cityvision [dot] edu before you may take any proctored exams (which are required in nearly all undergraduate courses).You will also need to send this before receiving financial aid if you are selected for financial aid verification – specifically, V4 or V5 verification. Our Financial Aid Office will notify you if this is the case.
Students may either scan in their ID or take a photo of it with a digital camera or smartphone.
Before taking proctored exams, you will need to select an exam proctor and have him or her be approved by the organization. This is needed for the undergraduate program only.
Additional Requirements for Master's program:
Provide 2 References - students must request at least two references from people who know them well enough to provide the information requested, include at least one work related reference and one character reference. Note: It would be helpful to obtain references from people who have observed you in your ministry and/or business setting. (Download Reference Request Form.)
Personal Learning Community (PLC) Agreements: Send PLC Agreement and Evaluation to 3-5 individuals. Your PLC is a strategic choice, providing you with fellow "travelers" who have a personal and/or professional interest in sharing your learning, i.e. how your perspective is changing and how that is impacting your life and work. For that reason, co-workers, pastors and/or spouses may be good candidates. You will be asking them to read your assignments and to hold you accountable for successfully completing your degree. This group will also provide the program director with periodic evaluations on your progress. (Download PLC Agreement and Evaluation)
