Undergraduate students may also demonstrate proficiency via a score of 2.8 or higher on the Duolingo Test at; for graduate students, the Duolingo requirement is 3.8 or higher.

Dual Enrollment

High school students may also enroll in City Vision University for dual enrollment credit. As per our accreditor’s policies, these students may only enroll if it does not interfere with their high school studies.

Dual enrollment students do not qualify for financial aid, and thus are not required to submit the document of high school graduation or equivalent which is required of other students. Rather, they are admitted on the basis of a signed letter of approval from their parent(s) or guardian(s).          

This letter should be sent to the Registrar’s office via fax at 816-256-8471, email to registrar [at] cityvision [dot] edu or by mail to City Vision University, 1100 E 11th Street,
