I’m a transfer student. Am I required to attend Orientation?

All new students – transfers and freshmen alike – should attend. We’ve created special events geared toward the needs and interests of transfer students, and we know that the information we share with you will ensure your success as a new student at Biola.

Can my parents and family come to Orientation?

Yes! Parents and families are welcome to come to New Student Orientation. Look for information about Parent and Family events on As of now, we are not expecting to have to limit the number of guests, but we should know more in the coming weeks.

Do I need to purchase a parking permit for Orientation?

All unmarked parking is open for new students and families throughout Orientation. If you are moving into campus housing, you will follow signs to park temporarily in front of your residence hall to unload, and then park in one of the two parking structures closest to your living area (either structure K or S). Commuters, we recommend you park in the parking structure S.
