Summer Session

Summer Session

North Park’s Summer Session offers a more relaxed learning atmosphere and opportunities to get ahead of fall course load, to explore new subjects, and to fulfill requirements for graduation. You’ll get to know fellow students and professors. For out-of-towners, you’ll live in Chicago for the summer while earning valuable credit. For those living at home for the summer, you can get ahead on classes for the fall.

All this at a reduced tuition rate. Our Summer Session tuition is reduced, at $610 per undergraduate credit hour—but the academics are for real.
