For Incoming First-time Students:

Smart Start Program

Are you at the point where you just can't wait for your first semester at Biola to begin? Do you wish you could use your summer more strategically and get a head start on college?

As an incoming student, you can take one or two Bible courses this summer before your first semester at Biola. These courses will cost 70% less than during the semester, giving you a head start on your Bible minor, and you will be introduced to the people you are going to be with for the rest of your college years. It’s the smart way to start at Biola.

For Incoming Transfer Students:

Bible Bridge Program

Are you transferring to Biola but worried about how much time it will take you to finish the rest of your degree?

The Bible Bridge program is specifically designed to help incoming transfer students get a head start on the Bible minor as well as build lasting relationships with other transfer students. You will have the opportunity to complete up to 6 credits (2 classes) of the required 30-credit Bible minor in just 7 weeks of coursework at a discounted price before the fall semester even begins!

“Bible Bridge made the transition to Biola so much easier. Although there was a lot of work at times, I was able to get a better feel for the school as well as develop relationships with the other students and the professors - all while getting credit for Bible classes!”
