Fall Semester - August 1

Note: While our priority deadline is December 1 for the spring semester, we will happily work with students and schools experiencing issues from Hurricane Sandy until January 2.
When the items necessary to establish admission are received, the student’s application is evaluated and the student is notified of the Admission Committee’s decision. Applicants are encouraged to begin and complete the admissions process as soon as possible. Students who apply after August 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring semester may not be admitted in time for the beginning of the semester. Adequate time must be given for other institutions to send transcripts and documentation to Point. Delays in the admissions process could adversely affect housing and certain types of financial aid considerations.
Students who apply early receive several benefits. When the first five steps are completed by November 15 for the next fall semester, the student receives an early decision by the Admission Committee and receives priority consideration for certain types of financial aid and housing. The applicant must complete all required steps for final admission prior to registration as a student. Any applicant who has not submitted all necessary materials by registration day will not be allowed to enroll for that semester. An application is valid for one academic year. Updated application forms are required if one year has elapsed since the application was submitted.
Requirements for Admission to Point University
Admission is granted by the Admission Committee on the basis of satisfactory evidence that a student has the ability to succeed at Point University. In keeping with the mission and objectives of Point, the admissions process seeks reliable confirmation of a student’s Christian character, academic preparation and social development. Admission policy and decisions are administered by the Admission Committee.
Adequate academic ability will be demonstrated by two primary factors: (1) the grade point average (GPA) for high school and any previous postsecondary work; and (2) the scores on the SAT-I and/or the ACT. A high school diploma or its equivalent is required for admission to all programs leading to an associate or baccalaureate degree.
Several categories of applicants have been established to address the specific needs and situations of those applicants. In addition to the “Application Procedures” for application, other considerations pertain to these classifications: international students, transfer students, transient students, home-schooled students, early or dual credit enrollment students, nondegree seeking students and readmission students.
A student’s admission to Point does not guarantee successful completion of any particular program of study. In addition, admission into the early childhood education program requires a 2.50 grade point average and other conditions; the counseling and human services internship (HRL 497) requires a 2.50 grade point average for the professional studies courses taken and other conditions.
