Tuition and Fees

The tuition rate at National Park College is about one-third the cost of public universities and a much smaller fraction of the amount of tuition charged by private institutions. In the Fall 2015 semester, NPC implemented a tuition guarantee for all continuously enrolled students. 

Please note: In April 2015, the NPC Board of Trustees approved a $1 per credit hour tuition decrease, which went into effect with the Fall 2015 semester.  In-county tuition decreases from $89 to $88 per credit hour, and out-of-county tuition decreases from $99 to $98 per credit hour.
