Frequently Asked Questions about Billing
Still have questions about your bill and payment options? Below are some questions that we hear often from students and parents. We hope you’ll find the answers you’re looking for here. However, if you still have specific questions about your bill or student account, don’t hesitate to contact Student Administrative Services.
Charges for tuition, room and board, lab and other course fees, health insurance (if applicable), and any other charges that you have incurred will be on your bill.
If you are enrolled full-time as a traditional undergraduate student or are taking six hours per semester in the Seminary, you are required to have health insurance. If you are covered under another policy, you must complete the online waiver that provides us with proof that you are covered by another policy by a specific due date each year. Students attending other programs are not required to provide proof of insurance, but do have the option to purchase the policy offered by North Park.
The first bills for the fall semester are mailed out in early July to students who have preregistered. We start sending out bills in mid-December to students that are preregistered for the spring term. You will receive a paper bill ONLY ONCE at the start of each semester, and then receive electronic billing notifications to your North Park email account every month thereafter if you have an outstanding balance on your account. You can always view your bill online through WebAdvisor.
Traditional undergraduate students who have not made payment arrangements by the tuition due date will be assessed a $50 late payment fee. All accounts that have an outstanding balance and are not on a payment plan will be assessed a 1.5% per-month late payment fee.
If you have not enrolled in a payment plan nor paid in full by the end of the fourth week, you may have your registration revoked and will no longer be registered as a North Park student. Additionally, this will result in the suspension of campus privileges such as housing, Helwig Recreation Center, and other student activities.
A business-office hold will be put on your account if you have an outstanding balance and have not made any payment arrangements. Please contact Student Administrative Services to discuss your payment options and plans.
Complete an Employer Reimbursement Form and submit documentation from your employer confirming their tuition benefits. There is a $75 annual fee for this payment plan. These documents must be submitted annually (every August).
While work-study is a financial aid award for traditional undergraduate students, it does not appear on your bill. Instead, you will be paid every two weeks for the hours that you have worked. You can use your earned funds for whatever you'd like, including directing them toward your bill.
It depends on what type of class you'd like to drop (semester vs. quad class) and when you are dropping it. Review our refund policies to get an idea about your charges. In addition, you should contact the Financial Aid Office to see if your aid will be impacted if you change your registration.
