Biola offers undergraduate students financial aid through scholarships, grants and loans. These avenues, in addition to student work study and other resources, help ensure your investment here pays off in your future. Take a look at how financial aid works.

Grants are need-based awards that do not need to be repaid. This means they’re made available based on financial need as determined by the FAFSA.
