Each Point Park undergraduate student who has declared a major is assigned to a faculty member, within their field of study, who serves as a professional and scholarly mentor. Faculty mentors are the student's primary resource for discussing current trends in their industry, graduate school options, internships and career opportunities, professional networking and more.

Academic Advisors assist students with various academic processes and monitor degree progress to ensure timely graduation. The University Advising Center also works closely with undecided students to help them explore majors that match their career and personal interests to find the best fit. The UAC is a hub where all undergraduate students are welcomed whether they have an appointment or are needing immediate assistance. The Center serves as a bridge to many other departments, guidance and support.
