Biola University is home to purposeful learners and compassionate leaders who want to see their communities and industries shaped by Christ. We’ll be honest: while the chances to learn outside the classroom are exciting; while the relationships you’ll form with students and faculty are life changing; while the professional preparation you’ll receive here is exceptional—we believe the value of a Biola education lies in the opportunity to become a better you. If you’re willing to trust God’s hand in the process of ever-progressing and never quite arriving, you’ll leave Biola changed in the best possible way.
Our team is committed to personally partnering with you. We’ll help evaluate your coursework to determine how your credits transfer, estimate the number of semesters you’ll spend at Biola, and walk you through financial aid.
Community of belonging
If you ask alumni or current students what sets Biola apart, a theme will quickly emerge. They’ll want to tell you about our community, with an eagerness that welcomes new relationships and adventures. Join a community ready to engage, wrestle with, and celebrate our differences. From multiethnic programs to affinity groups, we’re committed to welcoming the perspectives of students from all backgrounds as we move toward a unity in diversity, reflective of the kingdom.
Faith that engages
True faith involves asking the hard questions, and we’ll be the first to admit that we don’t have all the answers. However, we are convinced that biblical truth should and does inform every aspect of the way we learn from, interact with, and respond to the world around us. But our faith is far from anti-intellect. To the contrary, we take the commandment to love God with all our minds seriously, weaving biblical integration and critical thinking into every discipline.
