Complete the 2022-23 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Use the City Vision school code of 041191
Use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to fill out your FAFSA, if possible. This will add your tax information automatically, and makes it less likely you will need to submit additional documents.
After completing the FAFSA, you will be given the amount for the Expected Family Contribution (EFC).
You will only be eligible for Pell grants if your EFC is less than 6206 for 22-23. If your EFC is more than 0 but less than 6206, you will receive a partial Pell grant. When we receive your FAFSA information, we will send you an email with a financial aid offer amount. You may want to review the other forms of financial aid that we offer.
