Registration Dates

Family Weekend online registration is scheduled to be open from Tuesday, Sept. 2, to Friday, October 3, 2014.  Registration is subject to early closure if the event sells out, so make your plans early!

Planning Your Visit

Visit the Schedule of Events page to plan your family's activities and events before beginning the registration process.

Discuss your plans with your student to make sure they will be available. While Saturday's accelerated classes are on break on October 11, all other classes, rehearsals, athletic games, work obligations, etc. are still taking place, and your student may have obligations they must meet.

Special Accommodations

Please let us know if someone in your family requires special accommodations for the events on campus. For more information about special accommodations at off-campus events such as the Carnegie Museums or the Pittsburgh Zoo, please visit their websites or contact them directly.

Registration Cost

The Family Weekend registration fee is $10 per person and includes admission to all events and activities, including:

  • Welcome reception
  • Dance and theatre performances
  • Student film screenings
  • Student photo gallery exhibit
  • Dessert reception
  • Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium   
  • Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History  
  • Family Weekend courtesy shuttle for exploring some of Pittsburgh's shopping districts (Saturday afternoon)
  • Cross country meet
  • Java & Jazz in the Park
  • Hotel shuttle (Friday and Saturday evenings)
  • Point Park family brunch

While the cost of admission to all events is covered by your registration fee, you must indicate the number of tickets needed for each event you wish to attend. In addition, Point Park students attending Family Weekend events will need to be registered and pay the $10 per person fee.

It is also important that you check in for Family Weekend in order to pick up your welcome packet, which will contain your tickets.  If you do not have tickets for the zoo or Carnegie museums, you will need to pay the admission price upon entrance to those venues.  Lost tickets may not be able to be replaced.

The $10 per person fee is paid by credit card at the time of registration; please have your credit card available before proceeding. 

Ticket Limitations & Sold Out Events

Please be aware that some activities are offered multiple times, such as the dance/theatre performances and the student film screenings. All performances and screenings are the same, and while we encourage families to participate as much as they would like, there are a limited number of tickets for many events. 

So that all families have the opportunity to attend the various activities, each family is limited to one performance or viewing, when more than one is offered. 

Families who decide not to attend an event for which they have tickets are asked to turn them in at check-in so other families may use them.  Families who would like to attend additional performances/screenings, or obtain tickets to sold out events, should inquire at check-in to see if there are any available tickets.


Once you click on the registration link below, you will have created a registration; however, your registration is not complete until you have successfully completed the entire process, including payment.  Your registration is considered complete once you receive an emailed payment confirmation.  You should print the email confirmation, along with a copy of your registration, for your records.
