Thirdmill Seminary and City Vision University jointly design an accredited undergraduate certificate in Christian Ministry and a graduate certificate in Christian Studies.



Our Nonprofit Focus

  • Since 1998, we have partnered with thousands of ministries serving the poor and other nonprofits.
  • Nearly all our faculty have at least master's degrees, and have decades of experience in their fields.
  • Nearly all our faculty work at ministries, nonprofits, or Christian counseling centers.
  • You will learn exactly what you need to do on the job in our project-based courses.

  • No standardized tests (SAT, ACT, etc.) are required to enroll.

  • Transfer credits can be in any field (including vocational fields).


We are accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission, which is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a recognized accrediting agency. 

We are an Approved Provider for NAADAC, which means that our addiction counseling courses are approved for Certified Addiction Counselor credit in most states.

Flexible Online Courses

With our 8-week format and 5 start dates per year, you can study on your schedule in 100% online courses. You never have to travel to a physical campus.

Our online courses are like live courses but instead of live lectures, most are recorded. Instead of live discussion, you have discussion forums with other students.

  • Undergraduate tuition is $750 per course ($7,500/year full-time) and graduate tuition is $800 per course ($8,000 per year).

City Vision is $7,500 / year, compared to $12,000 / year or more for Liberty University and other leading online universities.

What Our Students are Saying:

My education at City Vision has been instrumental in my life. I feel confident in my knowledge of addiction. I am able to counsel others.

Their concern for their students has encouraged me to be more compassionate towards others. I am not just a student of City Vision. I am part of the City Vision family.
Rosemary White
I had a calling to become an addiction counselor and City Vision offered the most affordable and time effective way of doing that through their online classes.

I really enjoy the live class video sessions because it allows us to put names to faces.
