Payment Plans

Biola is committed to helping make your education affordable, and our payment plan options play an important role in that mission. Whether you’re an undergraduate, graduate, international or online bachelor’s student, our four different payment plans can help you plan out your finances as you prepare to start — or continue — your Biola University journey.

Please contact Student Account Services if you have questions about our payment plans.

See the Options

Biola offers four different payment options for your semester expenses. In addition to the payment plan options detailed below, please make note of the following details:

  • Semester expenses include tuition and (when applicable) class fees, university housing, meals, parking permit and health insurance (after authorized financial aid has been factored into your balance).
  • The down payment amount is 50% of all tuition and fees (after authorized financial aid has been factored into your balance).
  • If you are not paying your semester expenses in full, you must sign up for your payment plan through My Account within the “Payment” task.
