What We Do

The office of Graduate Admissions optimizes the number of well-matched students entering the graduate programs of Biola University. We value establishing relationships with prospective students, providing services that meet them at their place of need, and offering aid and direction as they travel the journey God has set before them.

On average, the department processes 1200 files for a fall start date and 600 graduate files for a spring start date. We admit approximately 550 students in the fall and approximately 300 in the spring.

We serve prospects, inquiries and applicants and assist students enroll in the 18 degree programs (masters and doctoral) and 80 certificate, credential and emphasis areas that span the six schools that comprise Biola University.
