Cost Calculation Details

Every student is unique in the number of courses they will take, what financial aid they can access, and tuition per credit hour typically changes from year to year. However, as a starting point, if you were to complete the CMHC program at North Park and pay full price beginning in the 2024-2025 academic year, your total cost could be estimated as follows:

  • The CMHC is a 60-semester-hour degree.
  • At this year’s tuition rate ($720 per credit hour), 60 hours would cost $43,200.
  • The CMHC is designed to be completed in two years of full-time study. Adjusting for slight per-credit-hour cost increases over time, a tuition cost range could be $41,400 to $43,900 for the entire CMHC program.
