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. AND to make starting at Biola even easier, you will be entered into a drawing to win one of our First Semester Books Scholarships simply by attending Enrollment Day!*

Enrollment How-To Sessions

The enrollment process is your final step in becoming an official Biola student! Hooray! Starting July 5, students will have access to the Enrollment (Phase2) Tab on their my.biola.edu account. This tab includes 10 steps of enrollment, including:

  • Housing & Meal Plan
  • Health Insurance
  • Parking Permit
  • Add or Drop Classes
  • Update Your Address
  • Denomination
  • FERPA Authorization
  • Financial Aid
  • Promissory Note
  • Select Your Payment Plan & Make Your 50% Down Payment

Students are welcome to complete these steps at home anytime on my.biola.edu between July 5 and August 17. During the Enrollment How-To Session, our Admissions team will walk you and your family through the process on your my.biola.edu 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!
