Course Registration

Registration is a process through which students are formally enrolled in their course(s) each semester of attendance.  A student registered for a given section of a given course may attend class, earn a grade and receive credit for their work. Registration is the responsibility of the student. However, there are people willing to help you to become familiar with the registration process.


For students who enter Point Park as their first post-secondary experience, your assigned success coordinator in the Center for Student Success will help you to create a schedule that follows an 8-semester course sequence developed for your major.  You will be pre-registered for your first semester to help ease your transition to the University. 

After successfully completing your first semester, you are able to register online via PointWeb.  Your course sequence and degree requirements will be sent to you prior to registration outlining the courses you will need to select.  You should communicate with your success coordinator and faculty advisor prior to the start of registration should you have questions regarding your courses, your academic progress or your academic goals. 

Transfer Students

Students who transfer to Point Park from another institution are assisted by a success coordinator for their first semester registration.  It is also important that you connect with your faculty advisor as soon as possible to discuss your academic standing, your academic and professional aspirations, and your path to degree completion.  You will register with your faculty advisor after your first semester at the University.

Graduate Students

For their first semester, graduate students register with their enrollment advisor in the Graduate Admissions Office, either by appointment or online via PointWeb.  The only exceptions are students entering the Communication Technology, Media Communication, and Concurrent MA/MBA programs, who register directly with their program director.  After the first semester, continuing graduate students will register with their faculty advisor.

Registration Policies

Full-time students who register for more than 18 credits must have the approval of their department chairperson or academic dean. Students on probation who want to register for more than 12 credits (full-time) or six credits (part-time) must have the written approval of the department chair.

Registration and schedule changes become official only when officially stamped by the registrar or approved via PointWeb by an advisor.
