Requirements to Receive Federal Student Aid Payments (Title IV)

  • In order to remain eligible for federal student aid, you must comply with the university’s policy on Satisfactory Academic Progress.
  • Students who are eligible for federal student aid (i.e., have completed all requirements) will be issued an award letter. Receipt of the award letter is considered to be acceptance of the funds offered, if no reply is made requesting a change in the award. Students can decline funds offered or request a change in offered amounts by emailing financialaid@cityvision.edu. If changes are requested, this will require our financial aid servicer to re-process your aid before a new award letter can be issued and funds disbursed.
  • If a student has submitted all required items in their financial aid file and been determined to be eligible and completed the first 5 weeks of their term, their financial aid will be disbursed on the first day of the seventh week of the term. Students will not be billed until the first day of the seventh week of the term. City Vision then has 14 days to issue a check. Students meeting these requirements can expect to have their check sent to them by the end of the term.
  • Half-time students will only receive half of their Pell grant awardTo be considered full-time in a term, a student must participate in 2 courses (or more). Students who only submit assignments in one course in a term are counted as half-time.
  • The charges for tuition will be automatically applied to your balance with the university according to the tuition billing policy. If you have a credit balance remaining after you have been charged for tuition and received your financial aid for a term, it will be refunded to you as per our Credit Balance Policy.
