Biola Preview Day is a two-day event, Sunday to Monday, where students and parents have the chance to explore different parts of the Biola community, or to experience a day in the life of a Biolan! You'll spend time meeting and chatting with students and faculty, worshiping at chapel, touring the campus and much more. The event also includes Admissions and Financial Aid sessions packed with information and an open time for Q&A. Our desire is to help you get your questions answered so that you can more adequately navigate through this vast college decision process!
If you're interested in learning more about Torrey Honors College and want to connect with their team to get your questions answered, make sure to register for Honors Hour happening from 1-3 p.m. just before Biola Preview Day Check In on Sunday, November 7th. Pre-registration is required, registration for Honors Hour - registration will open near the end of September.
On-campus, overnight housing will be offered for students only and will be reserved for prospective students from out of state or those in California who live 100+ miles from Biola. Space is limited and will be given on a first come first served basis. Overnight housing will not be guaranteed. If you are hoping to stay overnight in the dorms for Biola Preview Day, but you do not fall in one of the two categories outlined above, there will be an option on the registration form to be added to the waitlist should a space open up. Registrants will be notified if their overnight housing request has been approved.
