What We Do

Post-Traditional Admissions and Pathways Programs specializes in recruiting and counseling students who are outside of the “traditional” student profile. These students are either working towards completing an undergraduate degree or pursuing an undergraduate degree for the first time — entirely online.

We also work with high school students via pathway programs, like Smart Start and dual enrollment opportunities, to earn Biola credit online prior to enrolling. Our goal is to use Biola's online opportunities to connect with students where they are at and build a bridge toward completing a Biola undergraduate degree.
