Take The First Step

What is Smart Start?

Choosing a college is a big decision. We launched Smart Start so that future Biola students can get a head start by taking a few of our classes early and — along the way — experience Biola’s rich community and earn college credit at an exclusive, reduced rate.

Get College Credit

You can take up to two online classes in each of our summer terms. These classes can help you earn credit towards your Bible minor — a unique feature of our integrated Christian education — or toward your core curriculum requirement (foundational classes of your undergrad degree).
