Tuition & Fees


The tuition rate at National Park Community College is about one-third that of public universities and a much smaller fraction of the amount of tuition charged by private institutions.

Please Note: In May 2013, the NPCC Board of Trustees passed tuition increases, which will go into effect with the Fall 2013 semester.  In-County tuition increases from $80 to $85 per credit hour, and Out-of-County tuition increases from $90 to $95 per credit hour.  In addition, the Technology fee has increased to $8 per credit hour, and a new Wellness fee has been established at $1 per credit hour.
