    5. Review Registration Resources
      1. The Advising Center recommends that you review the following registration resources when you view your course schedule. This includes information about transfer courses.
        1. Adjusting Your Class Schedule
          1. Review this video for instructions on how to make adjustments to your schedule once it’s been released to you by Academic Advising. Students typically do not need to change their class schedule, but may choose to change a class time based on their preference.
        2. Degree Audit
          1. Your Degree Audit is a checklist of all courses (major, general education, Bible, or Torrey) required for graduation. Review this video for instructions on how to view and use your Degree Audit while at Biola.
        3. Course Sequence
          1. The course sequence table is a tool designed by each major department to show a typical graduation plan for a major or program. Review the course sequence for your major to understand how many credits per semester are estimated for your graduation. Please note that this course sequence is just one example. There are alternative or flexible ways to rotate some of the classes within the same year/level and sometimes between year levels.
        4. AP, IB, CLEP, Dual Enrollment and College-Level Transfer Credit
          1. For students planning to transfer in AP, IB, CLEP, or College-level courses, review our transfer course resources.

    7. Next Steps
      1. You are ready to begin your first semester courses! During the fall semester, you will be able to connect with a faculty/staff advisor in your major to discuss registration for the spring 2022 semester. You’ll get the chance to be introduced to your faculty or staff advisor during the first few weeks of the fall.

        Be on the lookout in your @biola.edu email address for more information about the campus reopening plans and its potential impact on your fall schedule as information is made available later this summer.

    Placement Exams (Freshmen and Transfers)

    Most of Biola’s majors require placement exams. Please view our Placement Exam Website for information on which exams are necessary for your program and to register for exam opportunities.
