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.

We Can Help You

There are many options to help you afford your education — from scholarships, grants and loans to payment plans — and we'll help you sort through them.

We are committed to making a Point Park education affordable, and we will work closely with you to make this unique real-world education a reality.

Generous Aid

For the 2012-13 academic year, 99 percent of our incoming freshmen received some type of financial aid, with an average assistance package of $21,900. We are pleased to offer a wide range of generous merit-based schlolarships.
