Biola is committed to making your education affordable through scholarships, as well as grants and loans with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This is in addition to student work and other resources that will help ensure your investment here pays off in your future. Take a look at how financial aid works.


These awards are based on merit, and don’t need to be repaid. We’ve significantly expanded scholarships, ranging from $5,000 to $19,000.


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


Loans are need-based financial aid awards that need to be repaid with interest. They’re offered based on financial need as determined by the FAFSA.
