Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.50 Average Rating
North Park is a great school hands down! It is definitely worth all the money I am paying for school; I wouldn't want to go anywhere else!
Katerina from Ingleside, IL
the store on campus has hundredths of cool north park university gear.
elizabeth from chicago, il
Because North Park is in an urban setting they received a lot of funding from the city. Instead of using the money for the campus they gave the money to the students. In 2008 the tuition for north park actually decreased.
Shellye from las vegas, NV
It is semi-expensive to go to North Park, but if you are able to find the money to come here, it is definitely worth it. North Park is a great academic school and was ranked number one in the country for their Nursing program. Although it is a dry campus and not a big party school, you can always find some fun around the neighborhood or even downtown. The quality of the university's education is great and you will definitely get your money's worth here.
Ulysses from Wauconda, IL
This school really does give you a lot more than what your paying for. For instance, the work-out facility, Helwig, was completed in the fall of 2006 Helwig Recreation Center houses a state-of-the-art workout facility, 200-meter indoor track, 35-yard practice football turf, basketball and volleyball courts, a climbing wall, coaches' offices, and classroom space. There are many things that a person or group of people could do here and not get bored. Also, every Tuesday and Thursday, there are ab work outs and yoga that is available for no extra charge.
