Smart Start 2017

Whether you’re an incoming freshman or a transfer student, you’re probably wondering how best to begin your time at Biola. With Smart Start you can take one or two Bible classes this summer before your first fall semester. This will allow you to get a head start on your Bible minor by completing one or two out of the ten required Bible courses, and you’ll be introduced to the people you’re going to be with for the rest of your college years.

Starting on July 10 you will have the opportunity to take an online class (or two), working with a Biola professor and interacting with other incoming Biola students like you!

The cost for Smart Start for new incoming freshmen and transfer students is offered at a 37 percent discount of $1,250 for each 3-credit course ($416.67 per credit). This year's heavily discounted rate is only available for incoming students! The cost for continuing students is the regular summer tuition rate.
