Christian Life Profile


Who we are
Founded in 1937, Point University provides an affordable, quality education within the context of a Christian world-view.

Students are prepared to attain their professional goals, equipped for spiritual growth and marketplace influence, and inspired to serve. With access to a full range of extracurricular activities, vibrant intercollegiate athletics, and community service opportunities, our students enjoy a robust traditional college experience. Those seeking a close-knit, diverse Christian environment in which faith is fully integrated into the entire educational experience will find a home at Point University.

Challenging academics
Our broad, challenging curriculum is designed to prepare students to lead in their chosen professions. We offer 57 associate and bachelor’s degree programs in 26 majors, some with pre-professional tracks that prepare students for graduate study in Veterinary Medicine, Occupational Therapy, Medicine, and Dentistry. Curricula-inclusive professional certifications in some fields give graduates a unique competitive advantage. Degree programs are available in-seat, online, or in a  “blended” format (online with live videoconference), so students study in the environment that best meets their needs.

Recently launched master’s programs in Business and Ministry are aimed at preparing recent graduates or those who have significant professional experience for additional education and impact in their chosen fields. Additional graduate-level programs are planned for in the University’s strategic plan.

At Point we endeavor to challenge and engage each student to develop relationships with their peers, growing their faith and influence.

Engaging opportunities
With 19 athletic teams, an award-winning marching band, eight campus ministries, six intramural sports teams, and 10 student organizations, there are a multitude of opportunities for students to be involved on campus. Our student life and residence life teams work hard to ensure each student has the opportunities to develop lifelong friendships and connections during their time at Point. Centered on tradition, our community chapels, annual impact days, celebration weeks, and homecoming activities give students opportunities to lead, fellowship, and engage with their peers.

Cultural relevance
We integrate faith into the entire education process so students can strengthen their relationships with Christ while preparing for a career. Everything our students do is intentional in equipping them to take their faith into the marketplace in new and culturally relevant ways.

Global impact
Our students and graduates are going into all the world to lead, love, and serve in a way that makes Jesus, the gospel, and the cross visible to a world in need. More than 5,000 alumni are serving and sharing Christ in the marketplace and the nonprofit world as entrepreneurs and professors, college presidents and ministry leaders, national recording artists and pastors, CEOs and counselors—all fulfilling significant roles that extend the mission that brought them to this University.
