Steps to Receive University Credit

Students who wish to take this course for free and later receive credit with City Vision University can take the following steps:

  1. Apply for free to City Vision University (takes less than 5 minutes).
  2. Pay the $100 tuition for the course. This tuition rate includes a $700 scholarship ($650 undergrad) since graduate tuition is regularly $800 ($750 undergrad). This scholarship only applies to first-time students, not to existing City Vision students. This scholarship applies only to City Vision’s non-federal aid courses.
  3. Choose an option for credit:
    a. Independent Study (start dates any time). You can submit your completed student assignment workbook to have your assignments graded for credit. This workbook is provided in the course. Advantage: can start at any time and work at your own pace.
    b. 8-Week Course Online with Faculty & Student Cohort (typically one start date per year in schedule). You can use whatever progress you’ve made in the free course to help jump-start you in our regular online course. Advantages: 1) students have a higher completion rate with the support of faculty and benefit from interaction with other students in discussions; 2) students choosing this option may qualify for Pell grants, which often more than pay the cost of tuition.
