Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.43 Average Rating
The school is a bit pricey for being not that well known. However, in this instance you pay for your education, not the name on the degree. Some core classes might be a bit too easy, but the classes involving your degree are top notch.
Joseph from Cochranton, PA
As far as value for your dollar, there are a ton of things that it buys you. Shuttles to Oakland where the Pittsburgh Playhouse is located, a site where any Point Park student can see shows for free. There is a nearby Starbucks which accepts student's flex dollars as well as two dining facilities that provide a wide variety of food for the student body. In addition to the academia advantages, students wishing for athletic pastimes can play pool or ping pong in the rec room. There is also a gym near the rec area that offers all the conveniences of a large, corporate-owned gym business.
Alex from York, PA
My experiences have been totally positive and I feel that I am really receiving my money's worth out of Point Park. The classes provide you with great information and you grow a lot socially as well.

The classes I'm taking are well worth what I pay.
Valerie from Pittsburgh, PA
It is incredibly expensive, but I know being a Cinema major they put a lot of money into equipment.
Angelo from Pittsburgh, PA
Point Park may seem expensive when first applying, but really they do provide a lot of help to students making it much more affordable than many other colleges.
