Online Learning

Complete your program online

Point Park University offers a growing number of degree and certificate programs in a fully online format. Classes for these programs are offered entirely via the Internet following well-established curriculum used in traditional classrooms.

The online programs begin in both the fall and spring semesters, and students never need to visit campus. All courses are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week via Blackboard, the University's course management system.

Fully Online Programs

Easy to Use Technology

Students access Blackboard via a secure log-in using their own high-speed Internet connection. The Blackboard platform allows for trouble-free access to course content and ongoing interaction between course instructors and students. Curious about how it works? Read more about Blackboard.

Point Park provides students with clear and concise information on computer hardware and software requirements. This ensures your computer’s compatibility with the University network and student service systems. Be sure to read all system requirements.

Library Services

Point Park's Library offers all students virtual access 24 hours a day. View our Articles & More section to conduct research and PointCat to search books, DVDs, etc. And because the University participates in such borrowing programs as EZ-Borrow and InterLibrary Loan the library extends well beyond its own walls to bring you what you need. To reach a librarian text, IM, call or email us. The library is ready to help you make the most of your online learning.

More Online Options

In addition to the fully online programs listed above, Point Park’s School of Business and other schools offer individual online classes, as noted in the University’s coursebook. The coursebook also lists hybrid classes, which means a course may include online requirements along with traditional in-class time.  All are all identified with “hybrid” or with an HY designation.
