North Park University offers several avenues by which you can pay your bill each semester or academic year. You are responsible for the balance on your account after any scholarships, grants, and loans have been applied to your bill.
Payments are due prior to the start of each semester. For the current academic year due dates are:
- Fall semester: August 15, 2014
- Spring semester: January 5, 2015
Pay the Outstanding Balance When Due
Payments can be made by cash, check, e-check, or credit card. Checks should be made out to North Park University and submitted to Student Administrative Services, located on the first floor of the Student Services Building. The service desk is staffed Monday through Thursday, 8:00 am to 6:30 pm; Friday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm; and Saturday, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
Payment checks, clearly marked with your student ID number, can also be mailed to:
North Park University
Student Administrative Services, Box 9
3225 W Foster Ave
Chicago IL 60625
Credit card payments can be made by phone at (773) 244-5560 or (773) 244-5605, or online through WebAdvisor. The University accepts MasterCard, American Express, Visa, and Discover.
Credit card payments will be processed through Official Payments, a leader in electronic payment processing, and will be assessed a 2.5 percent service fee, paid directly to Official Payments to cover the associated costs of credit card processing.
Using WebAdvisor, you may make payments on your student account balance by electronic check ("e-check"). You will need the routing number, account number, and check number to make this form of payment. You must also provide the name and address as it appears on the check, along with a valid email address.
No fee is charged for set-up or payment by the electronic check process. E-check payments can also be made by phone with Student Administrative Services, (773) 244-5560 or (773) 244-5605.
Monthly Payment Plan with North Park University
North Park offers a monthly payment plan, available to students in all our academic programs, that will allow you to pay your bill via monthly payments throughout the semester. If you’re enrolling for the full year, your payment plan can extend up to 10 months. A student services specialist will work with you to ensure that your payment plan is accurate throughout the term. There is a $30/semester fee to enroll in our plan, and it is interest free throughout the semester. Your first payment can be made as early as August 1 for the fall semester.
Complete the Payment Plan Agreement Form to enroll in this convenient payment plan.
Employer Reimbursement Plan
If you are employed by a company that offers a tuition reimbursement program, North Park’s Employer Reimbursement Plan allows you to defer payment of tuition until two weeks after grades are posted if necessary. To enroll in the plan, complete the Employer Reimbursement Form and return it to the address on the top of the form. You will need to include documentation from your employer indicating that you are part of the organization's tuition reimbursement plan. There is a $75 annual fee to enroll in the payment plan.
Student Worker Payroll Deduction
If you are working on campus, money you earn can be directly applied to your tuition bill as you earn it. In order to choose this option and have some or all of your University paycheck automatically credited to your student account, complete the Payroll Deduction Agreement Form and return it to Student Administrative Services. This may be a good option for undergraduate students who are awarded work-study as part of their financial aid package. Remember that if you will not be earning enough to cover your entire balance through Payroll Deduction, you will need to make other arrangements to pay the rest of your charges.
