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

3.62 Average Rating
Park's education is really awesome for the amount of money your paying. It's a private university and you're paying so little. It's a beautiful campus, so you can just walk around if you like and look at the scenery. The town of Parkville is just a walk away and there are so many cool and cute little stores, restaurants and shops down there to explore.
Sarah
This is a great private college that works hard to help you with academic scholarships. The class size is small and campus easy to get around with great living space. Student count is small so it is easy to get to know and trust people.
Kristina from Independence, MO
College is never cheap; however, Park has many scholarship and financial aid opportunities to help pay for it all. Also, Park offers so many different studies and resources for students, it is all worth it. Everything offered at Park University is available to all students without any additional pay!
Syerra from Holden, MO
Park's in-state and out-state tuition and fees are the same-around 15,000 dollars because it is a private learning instituion. Saves students a lot of money!
Pearl from Kansas City, MO
If you want a fun yet private school where you get that at home feeling then PARK U is your place.
Chaz from Saint Louis, MO
For the price you get small classes where the teacher knows your name. They are not there to help you earn a piece of paper but to help you learn. The student activities are great, and with a small school it is like a small town. It quickly becomes your home where everyone knows your name
