Paying for College
It’s not too early for you and your family to start thinking about paying for college. No matter where you go, it will be a substantial investment of time, money, and energy, and we want you to find the best value you can for your investment.
North Park University is committed to keeping college affordable, and we’ll work to give you the best financial aid package we can. But we know it can still sometimes be a stretch.
