July 24, 2017

Enrollment Day is specifically designed for you, our incoming first-time Biola students, and your families! This event is your opportunity to partake in the fun activities happening across campus. From getting your student ID card, taking a tour of your dorm, and having lunch with your future dorm-mates or fellow commuters, our campus is open for your enjoyment. See the Choose Your Own Adventure options below for a complete list of all the activities across campus. Our Admissions counseling staff will also be on hand to walk you through each step of the enrollment process during the Enrollment How-To Session. See below for more details.

We hope this event helps you and your family feel prepared, equipped, and excited to enter Biola this fall!


Enrollment How-To Sessions

The enrollment process is your final step in becoming an official Biola student! Hooray! Starting June 21, students will have access to Enrollment through myaccount.biola.edu. The topics covered during this step of enrollment include:

  • Financial Responsibility Agreement
  • Housing & Meal Plan
  • Health Insurance
  • Financial Aid
  • Parking Permit
  • Payment

Students are welcome to complete these steps at home anytime on My Account between June 21 and August 15 (late enrollment occurs August 16-September 1). During the Enrollment How-To Session, our Admissions team will walk you and your family through the process on My Account! Sessions will be held in one of our campus computer labs, so no need to bring your computer. Come prepared to complete your enrollment steps!

Choose Your Own Adventure

While you are here there will be many things to do and see! Here are some of the stops that you can make throughout the day:

  • Explore Your Dorm

    Living on campus? Come see your assigned dorm and check out a room inside! Please note: students will not be able to view their assigned dorm room, as rooms are still in use over the summer.
  • Student Success Workshop

    Interests are a powerful factor when it comes to your success at Biola and beyond. In this session you will get the chance to take an assessment (for free!) that will help you learn more about yourself and the environments that you are likely to thrive in. You can take this new-found knowledge into your decision making about majors and career.

  • Collegium Open House

    If you will be living off campus, come visit the Collegium, the commuter student's "home away from home"- located in the upper Student Union building. Come meet our friendly staff, have some snacks, and a cold drink! Commuter Life Team members will be ready to answer your questions. You will also have an opportunity to sign up for Collegium memberships as well as Commuter lockers. For more about the Collegium, visit: www.biola.edu/collegium
  • Academic Advising Appointments

    Any last minute questions about your class schedule? Academic Advisors will be available for pre-scheduled appointments. Please check your email to find more information about how to sign up for an appointment.
  • Get Your ID Card

    Bring a government issued ID (i.e. driver’s license or learner’s permit) and come ready for a photo!
  • Submit Your Health Forms

    Stop by the Student Health Center to submit your health forms, due August 1!
  • Campus Tour

    1 hour tours will be offered for families to catch a full view of campus and hear more about Biola’s story.
  • Coffee Shops

    Take a break and enjoy a treat from one of our three coffee shops across campus.
  • Financial Aid Appointments

    Any last minute questions about your financial aid? Financial Aid Counselors will be available for walk-in appointments.
