Financial Aid & Tuition

How realistic is paying for a Point Park education? In a word, VERY.

Point Park is a private university, and a highly affordable one. When you consider tuition that is lower than many of its competitors, more generous financial aid packages and a comparison of cost to graduate outcomes, Point Park is a value unlike any other.
