City Vision University Standards of Admission

Program Admissions Requirements

To enroll in City Vision University, prospective undergraduate students must have at least have graduated from high school or the equivalent, and master’s students must have at least a bachelor’s degree, except for Dual Enrollment students (see below). Students must demonstrate their ability to complete college-level coursework through satisfying our academic eligibility requirements.

For non-native English speakers, we require students to demonstrate English proficiency based on the TOEFL, or have successfully completed at least one year in post-secondary education where the primary language of instruction was in English. For those taking the TOEFL, undergraduate students must have a 61 internet or 500 paper score. Graduate students must have a 71 internet or 530 paper score. Undergraduate students may also demonstrate proficiency via a score of 2.8 or higher on the Duolingo Test at www.duolingotest.com; for graduate students, the Duolingo requirement is 3.8 or higher.

Additional Requirements for the Master's in Technology and Social Entrepreneurship (MTSE) Program

To be admitted in the MTSE program, you must either have either a bachelor's degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Math-related field, or an unrelated bachelor's degree with at least one year's work or volunteer experience in a position that significantly involves science, technology, engineering or math.

Dual Enrollment

High school students may also enroll in City Vision University for dual enrollment credit. As per our accreditor’s policies, these students may only enroll if it does not interfere with their high school studies.

Dual enrollment students do not qualify for financial aid, and thus are not required to submit the document of high school graduation or equivalent which is required of other students. Rather, they are admitted on the basis of a signed letter of approval from their parent(s) or guardian(s).          

This letter should be sent to the Registrar’s office via fax at 816-256-8471, email to registrar [at] cityvision [dot] edu or by mail to City Vision University, 3101 Troost Ave. Suite 200, Kansas City MO 64109-1845.

Statement of Non-Discrimination

City Vision University does not discriminate in its admissions because of race, sex, color, creed, age, religion, or national origin or any characteristic protected by law.

Please note: 

City Vision University courses are delivered totally over the Internet. Some courses have on-site requirements, however, that require access to the operations of a ministry or nonprofit.

For those who are not currently involved with a nonprofit,  full-time internships with paid tuition are available. If you are not interested in an internship, check with the City Vision University office for assistance in finding appropriate sites where you live.
