Investigate true cost. Choose value.

In and out of the classroom, Park University students accomplish a great deal and leave their mark on our University and in their communities. When you submit your application for admission, you’ll automatically be considered for merit scholarships. No separate application is required for you to be considered for merit scholarships. Listed scholarship values automatically renew for a total of four years, as long as academic and conduct standards are maintained.

We encourage every family to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which estimates how much your family can afford and determines need.
