Financial Aid Process
Take it step by step.
Whether you’re a new or continuing student at Biola, the financial aid process is a crucial aspect to financing your education. The Office of Financial Aid is here to guide you through the steps you need to take, the forms you need to fill out and the financial aid opportunities available to you.
Applying for Aid: Steps and Deadlines
The financial aid process starts out by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or other forms requested by our office. Take a look at the steps you need to follow, as well as important dates and deadlines you should mark on your calendar.
Based on your completed FAFSA information, our office will begin to put together the best financial aid offer for you — and we request specific forms from you to help with that process. You can access those forms through your profile in Biola’s My Account system, or take a look at our “Important Forms” page to access and complete the requested information.
Biola offers four different payment plan options that can help you spread out your semester expenses. Learn more about the plans and see which one fits your needs.
Course Eligibility Information
Federal financial aid (Title IV) rules state that only courses that count towards the completion of a student’s degree program may be included when calculating a student’s eligibility for aid. Learn more about how to review your course eligibility.
