Meet with an admission counselor
You're sure to have questions when you visit Point Park, and our admission counselors are prepared to answer them. Inquire about our majors, real-world learning opportunities, admission requirements, tuition costs, financial aid and more.
Meet with a professor

Ask about courses you'll be taking, class sizes and any research and internship opportunities. You can request this optional addition to your agenda on our visit form. We will do our best to accomodate, but suggest a two-week advance request.
