Online Programs Admission Process
At Point Park University, our goal is to make the application process as streamlined as possible. Each applicant works with a personal enrollment counselor who evaluates all transfer credits and looks through all financial aid options to help students make the most informed decision possible.
Applications are encouraged well in advance of each term.
How to Apply
- Complete the online application
- Submit official transcripts
To submit your transcripts, print and complete the Official Transcript Request Form. The university reserves the right to require an interview or supplementary materials for any applicant and use these as a means for making an admission decision.
Undergraduate Admission Requirements
Degree admission requires a satisfactory transcript from either a high school or postsecondary institution. Transcripts from postsecondary institutions must include a minimum of 12 earned credits or six months of training. A cumulative minimum GPA of 2.0 is required. Students with a lower GPA may be considered for admission by the program director based on additional information in support of the application.
Advanced Standing/Experiential Learning Credit Requirements
In addition to credits that can be transferred from another institution, students may earn credits for their experiential learning. To receive these credits, students must submit one of the following for review:
- Learning assessment portfolio
- College Level Examination Program (CLEP), DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST exams) or UExcel© exam score
- Proof of Advanced Placement (AP) credit
Other sources of experiential learning may be considered for credit. These credits do not fulfill any of the minimum 30 credits that must be completed at Point Park University to graduate. Contact an enrollment counselor to learn more.
