As parents and family members of a student at Point University, we want to welcome you to this great community of people who are a part of the Point family. As parents and families, you are trusting us with the responsibility to not only educate your student, but to help him or her along the way as he or she grows into a mature young adult. We take that responsibility very seriously, and want you to know that. You are also making a huge investment in the education of your student. While there is little debate in our culture about the long-term earnings value of a college education, we believe that the integration of faith into the educational process is a huge benefit that students at Point receive.
During new student orientation, we will work hard to integrate every new student into the life and culture of Point University. This is an extremely important time in their lives, and participating in orientation will be very helpful in terms of your student’s success in college. We recognize that this is a challenging time, both for students – who suddenly realize that going to college is very different than going to high school – and for parents and families, who are confronted with the reality that their students going to college ushers in a whole new aspect of life. We are determined to make this a good experience for both our students and their parents and families.
Throughout the year, the Student Development Office and the Student Services Office will provide regular updates on this site. We want to encourage you to check it regularly so you will have a better idea of what is going on with campus life, academic programs, and other related areas.
If you have questions about any aspect of life at Point, we want you to contact us. The Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act, or FERPA, means that unless your student has signed the FERPA release form
, we can’t answer specific questions about grades, attendance, etc. However, if your student has signed the release form, we can provide you with the information you need.
