Frequently Asked Questions

1. What if I am having trouble logging into PointWeb?

Call the Help Desk at 412-392-3494.

2. How can I tell what classes I still need to take?

Use the advising sheet in PointWeb.  Under the Student Info tab, select the gray Advising box on the left-hand side of the page.  Then click the blue Course Needs link.  Always click the "recalculate student progress" button. Then open the PDF of your Advising Worksheet.  Classes you are still required to take are marked with a black dot.

3. How do I add classes to my schedule?
  • Go to PointWeb
  • Log in with your Student ID #. If you have never logged in before, a password will be sent to your Point Park email address. Just click "I forgot my password" then "Send new password."
  • Add classes one of two ways:
    1. Click on the Student Info Tab-->Click Advising (on the left hand side of the page)-->Click on Course Needs-->Select your classes by following the blue "see available courses" link.

4. Why can't I add certain classes to my schedule?

You will not be able to add classes to your schedule if it conflicts with another course you have already added to your schedule or if you have not met the pre-requisite for the class.

5. What do I do if I get a pre-requisite error?

If you are unable to add a class to your schedule because of the pre-requisite error, email your advisor with the specific course code of the class you want to add.  If you have met the pre-requisites, the course will be added to your schedule manually.

6. How can I tell what classes are in my cohort? (Accelerated Students only)

Saturday Fast business program and M.B.A. students following the accelerated format are placed in specific cohorts to ensure timely graduation.  The easiest way to select courses in the same cohort is to look for the two letter indicator at the end of each course code.  For example, every class in cohort "PR" will have the letters "PR" in the course code.  Example: BUS 301 S A PR.

7. How do I make changes to my schedule?

You are able to add and drop classes at any time during the registration period with PointWeb. Click on the Student Info Tab.

To DROP a class: Click on Add/Drop Courses; your schedule will appear.  Put a check mark in the class you want to drop and click "cancel selected courses."  The class will be removed from your schedule.

See Question 3 for how to adda class.

Your advisor for registration is determined by your major, and is identified in PointWeb.  You may make an appointment to see an advisor during their office hours.

9. When will I know that my schedule was approved?

Your schedule will be reviewed by your advisor who will either approve it or contact you via your Point Park email to make any necessary changes.  You will be able to view your official schedule through PointWeb within 24-48 hours of registration.  Go to the Student Info Tab and click the Student Schedule link on the left hand side of the page.
