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.

Filing the FAFSA and Applying for Aid

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.
