Why Choose Biola For Your Online Degree?
Ready to earn your degree online at a quicker pace and a lower cost than a traditional four-year degree program?
Whatever your background — starting from scratch, transferring from another college or looking to hit the “unpause” button on your education after many years — Biola University’s online degrees can help you meet your goals.
Flexible and Convenient Programs
Earn your degree at your own pace by taking online classes that fit your schedule. We teach our classes through a user-friendly system that allows you to watch lectures and complete assignments on your preferred device — from almost anywhere in the world.
U.S. News & World Report ranks Biola as a top-tier national university. Forbes lists Biola as one of “America’s Top Colleges,” schools it deems as “well worth the investment.” And all of Biola’s programs are accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission.
As an online student, you’ll join an authentic, all-Christian community of faculty and staff and receive an education that’s taught from a Christian perspective — helping you to approach your academic field and career with a biblical worldview.
Our online courses are taught by experienced Christian faculty and feature the same high-quality teaching every on-campus Biola student receives. You’ll learn from professors who care deeply about their fields and their students.
Online doesn’t have to mean impersonal. At Biola, we’re committed to providing you the best online learning environment — including help from real people (we call them “success coaches”) who will help guide you through every step of the process.
Transfer and Veteran Support
Biola’s online bachelor’s programs are an ideal option for transfer students and veterans. We’ll work with you to maximize your transfer credits (up to 70 credits from other institutions) and financial aid, based on your experience and service.
My experience with Biola's Applied Psychology program has been rewarding...I would encourage other adult learners who have been considering going back to school to give it some serious thought, clear out your schedule as much as possible and then go for it. It has been well worth it.
The flexibility of Biola's applied psychology program allowed me to complete my degree while working and doing ministry. I am so grateful for the faculty’s concern of my educational goals and spiritual well-being along the way.
Get Started On Your Degree
Applying to an online degree program is a major life step — and you don’t have to take it alone. We’re here to guide you through the process. Our friendly admissions counselors would be happy to walk you through the application steps, discuss your financial aid options, estimate the number of semesters you’ll spend at Biola, and evaluate how any existing college coursework will transfer.
And if you start your program this summer, you’ll receive a $500 scholarship. (This special one-time offer is open to new incoming summer 2018 students enrolled in at least 6 credits.)
Apply by April 15 and you can be taking your first online class as soon as May 7.
