City Vision’s general education requirements were adapted from models provided by the Lumina Foundation’s Degree Qualification Profile as well as the AAC&U’s LEAP campaign’s Essential Learning Outcomes. Much of the language and categories for our revised general education requirements come from these two sources because they represent the most widely used related standards in the US. City Vision has simplified their requirements to reflect our mission that focuses primarily on degree completion for adult learners. These general education requirements went into effect for the 19-20 academic year. For our prior general education requirements see below. Students from previous catalog years that are still active with City Vision may request to change their catalog year to the new requirements.
Students entering City Vision with transfer credits of less than half their degree (60 for Bachelor’s or 30 for Associate’s) will be required to take the following specific courses to meet the above requirements and graduate.
Students that maintain at least a 3.5 GPA at graduation may be granted an exception to the above prescribed Foundational Course requirements. The above courses will count toward general education unless they are already applied to their core degree requirement.
The following is how transfer credit will be mapped to general education credits with City Vision.
Including: Survey of Literature, Technical Writing, Poetry Writing, English Composition, Business Communication, etc.
Broad Knowledge and Intellectual Skills

Mathematics & Natural Science (min 3 / max 21)
