About Off-campus Programs

University building at Oxford

Biola University values experiential and cross-cultural learning. We are committed to providing opportunities for our students to participate in off-campus programs. Off-campus programs offer a unique opportunity for students to make the world their classroom, going beyond the confines of the traditional classroom experience. These are vital to our ability to fulfill our mission to educate students in mind and character and to impact the world for Christ.

In most cases, students can participate in off-campus programs at the same cost of on-campus tuition and average room and board. Participating students continue to qualify for federal, state and Biola aid. This allows students to continue to obtain the maximum aid possible while participating in an off-campus program.

Students who are interested in this type of educational experience should contact the appropriate director of the program. These programs are open to juniors and seniors.

All students participating in off-campus programs must complete the off-campus programs registration form (available at the Office of the Registrar). The faculty advisor for the program will help students determine their coursework.
