Point Park offers assistance, expedited transfer process to AB students

PITTSBURGH — Point Park University recognizes how traumatic the closure of Alderson Broaddus University in West Virginia is for affected students, and we want you to know we are ready to assist as you consider next steps.

“A lot of us have college-age children, and a member of our leadership team has a son in his senior year at ABU,” President Chris W. Brussalis said. “We have an entire team of people here who also understand the stress and anxieties that can impact college students, and we stand ready to help anyone who reaches out to us.”

Classes start Aug. 28 at Point Park, located a little more than two hours away from ABU in downtown Pittsburgh. With our policy of rolling admissions, we can make a transfer to our school a smooth and painless process. Those students who reach out to Point Park will undergo an expedited process that will include a transcript review, financial aid package and discounted housing. You can qualify for all need-based aid and up to $25,000 in athletic, academic and merit scholarships. You also will have access to a transfer counselor to assist the process and an academic success coach.

Whether you’re an undergraduate or graduate student, you will find that Point Park offers a number degree programs that may be a good fit and keep you on a path toward graduation. We also have a robust offering of online programs that would allow you to continue working uninterrupted toward your degree.

Student-athletes at ABU are encouraged to contact us and set up meetings with Athletic Director John Ashaolu and his coaches. Point Park offers a full slate of athletics for both men and women, as well as coed sports like competitive cheer, competitive dance and esports.

We take a personalized approach to education here, and you’ll find attentive faculty and staff who will support you on your journey.
