Student Financial Charges

Financial charges to students for City Vision College courses are divided into four categories:

  1. Application fee.  Students enrolling in City Vision College for the first time are required to pay a one-time application fee of $25 for undergraduate students and $50 for graduate students.  This fee is paid only once and covers the initial cost of establishing and maintaining a student's file. This fee is non-refundable unless the refund request is made within 5 business days from when the student submits their application, not including holidays and weekends
  2. The tuition, or academic, fee.  This is paid to City Vision College upon registering for a course, and covers the cost of instruction.  Access to the virtual classroom for a particular course is granted when a student registers for that course. Note: textbooks and other instructional materials are not included in the tuition rate. They must be purchased separately.
  3. The cost of required textbooks.  City Vision College does not sell textbooks to students but uses a third party vendor to operate its online bookstore.  The bookstore offers competitive prices on the necessary textbooks but we recommend that students shop around to purchase textbooks online and locally.  See the course descriptions to see required resources for each course. Pell grants cannot be used to pay for textbooks, but student loans can, after the money is received by the student.

Students can estimate their financial aid at: Some students use the following estimates for other expenses for their estimate: off-campus room and board $7,000; Other $500.
