Prepare for Your Virtual Advising Appointment

You will meet with a faculty advisor from your major to review your transfer coursework as well as your Fall 2020 class schedule. If during this time you notice any transfer coursework not accounted for or would like to adjust your fall schedule, please alert your advisor. We want to be sure that you have an accurate schedule going into your first term.

Before Your Faculty Advising Appointment

  • View your degree progress on Degree Audit
    • Degree Audit is an online tool that displays your transfer credit and remaining Biola course requirements. Your Degree Audit only shows courses that were transferred with an official transcript. In-progress or unofficial courses will not be shown on the Degree Audit until a final transcript has been sent directly to Biola.
