Are you transferring to Biola but worried about how much time it will take you to finish the rest of your degree? The Bible Bridge program is specifically designed to help incoming transfer students get a head start on the Bible minor as well as build lasting relationships with other transfer students. Students have the opportunity to complete 3 units of the required 30-unit Bible minor in less than 4 weeks of coursework at a discounted price!
The program is designed to mirror Biola’s Interterm session. The class lasts 3 weeks during January 2014 and is completed before the Spring semester begins.
Courses: There is currently one course offered during this session:
Dates: January 2nd – January 17th.
Eligibility: Students who can participate are incoming transfer students who have been accepted to the University and have submitted their enrollment deposit. Students can be starting Biola in Spring 2014 or Fall 2014 to participate this year.
Students will complete Foundations of Christian Thought for a total of 3 units. This class is required for every student as part of the 30-unit Bible minor.
This course is completed completely online, which allows students to have discussions online, turn in papers online, etc. Information about the Foundations of Christian Thought online class can be found in the course description.
Due to the fact that this class is condensed, it is very academically intense. Students in the past have estimated that at least 5-6 hours a day is required to complete the assignments. Please do not underestimate the amount of time and effort required for this class. Because the program is short, it is very intense.
Textbooks: Textbooks are decided by the professors and students will be informed about these when they receive a syllabus. All textbooks will be available through the Biola Bookstore.

“Bible Bridge made the transition to Biola so much easier. Although there was a lot of work at times, I was able to get a better feel for the school as well as develop relationships with the other students and the professors - all while getting credit for Bible classes!”
