Time for some real-world experience. We know that some of your best learning happens outside the classroom. Our location—just miles down the road from Los Angeles, a global city of industry—affords endless opportunities for you to network and gain practical skills in your field through relevant internships and employment.
Sport your spirit. We’ve got big news—Biola is now NCAA Division II. That means we’re renewing rivalries with old competitors and taking our Eagle pride to the next level. Join an intramural team to show off your athletic ability or support one of our 14 Biola teams as they take to the field, pool, track, and court.
Adventure is out there. Imagine living in the heart of Southern California: World-famous beaches and snow-dusted mountains with breathtaking views. The vibrant hum, bustling rhythm, and unique culture of local cities. Coffee shops on every other corner that come in cozy, trendy, or quirky—take your pick. And to top it off, the Happiest Place on Earth is just a 20-minute drive away.
Traditions with a twist. Start the year off with Nationball, a high-energy dodgeball competition between dorms. Celebrate the season with Punk n’ Pie, a festive school-wide talent show, or our annual Christmas Tree Lighting, complete with caroling, community, and “snow.” Finish off the year with Mock-Rock, an all-out costumed and choreographed lip-sync showdown.
There’s a club for that. Got a passion for ballet, accounting, rugby, politics, the spoken word, scuba diving, social justice, or something else entirely? We’ve got you covered. With over 77 clubs, ministries, and affinity groups on campus, you’ll be able to connect with some of the world’s best students while doing what you love. What more could you ask for?
At A Glance
We know you’re not looking for extra hoops to jump through. Let’s keep the process simple—you don’t need to take any specific courses before you transfer.
Even if standardized tests aren’t your strength, your hard work is worth honoring. If you’ve taken more than 15 transferable semester credits post–high school, don’t worry about sending us your SAT or ACT scores. If you haven’t, you can still apply as a transfer, but we’ll need your high school transcripts and SAT or ACT scores.
Your college experience speaks for itself. That’s why we’ll accept 70 community college credits and an unlimited number of credits from four-year institutions. We also accept the completed IGETC, CSU Breadth, and select ADT pathways.
Life happens. If your plan doesn’t quite go, well, according to plan, we’ll keep your records on file for up to two years, so all you’ll have to do is submit an updated college transcript to reapply.
Our team is committed to partnering with you every step of the way. We’ll come alongside you and help evaluate your coursework to determine how your credits will transfer, estimate the number of semesters you’ll spend at Biola, and walk you through financial aid.
