What We Do

The Office of Traditional Undergraduate Admissions serves Biola University by attracting, recruiting and matriculating qualified incoming freshman and transfer students. Our mission is to present Biola University to as many potential world-changers as possible. We invite prospective students to explore a vision of college for themselves by considering Biola and applying for admission. We are guides and counselors for students as they explore and seek God’s will for this important decision.

We want to increase awareness and build enthusiasm for Biola University. We do this by executing recruitment initiatives, cultivating trusting relationships with relevant audiences, and communicating programming that attracts diverse populations through our multi-ethnic outreach and greater team efforts.
