Understanding Your Fall Schedule

Review Your Course Schedule on My Account
You've been registered for your first-semester courses! One of the courses you'll see on your schedule is GNST 102: The Biola Experience. This course is required for all Freshmen and Transfer students unless you are transferring in an approved equivalent course.
When your time ticket begins, review your classes on My Account under the "Review Course Schedule" task. Watch the video below for a tutorial on how to access your schedule.
What is GNST 102: First Year Seminar — The Biola Experience (FYS)?
As of Fall 2022, all incoming first-time freshman, transfer, and freshman-transfer students are required to take GNST 102: First Year Seminar — The Biola Experience for 1 credit. Students may transfer in the course from another approved Christian university, and those pursuing a second bachelor degree at Biola will have FYS waived.

Use the following resources to learn about adjusting your course schedule, transferring credit and using your Degree Audit to plan your academic journey.
Adjusting Your Class Schedule
This guide includes instructions for viewing and making adjustments to your course schedule. Students typically do not change their schedule, but may choose to change a class or time based on their preference.
Planning Your Academic Journey
Degree Audit and the Course Sequence table are two tools to plan your academic journey.
- Review the Course Sequence table to understand how many credits per semester are estimated for your major. The course sequence is an example and there are alternative or flexible ways to rotate some of the classes within the same year/level and sometimes between year levels.
- 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.
For students planning to transfer in AP, IB, CLEP, or College-level courses, review our transfer course resources.
If you have further questions about how to view or adjust your course schedule, please contact The Advising Center at 562-903-4782 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Our office is available for questions M-Th from 9:30 a.m.– 5 p.m. and Fridays from 9:30–11:30 a.m.During the fall, you will be connected with a faculty/staff advisor in your major to discuss registration for the spring 2023 semester.
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.
