Returning Students

Welcome back, we're happy you are here! A returning student is one who will be attending Biola after having been away for at least one semester. All returning students have previously been accepted and attended Biola. To apply to Biola as a returning student, follow the steps below.

  • Returning Students Steps to Apply

    1. Complete and submit your official application for returning students online. Every advantage goes to the early applicant.

    2. If you have been away from Biola for more than two years, you must submit a reference from a member of the pastoral staff of your church that attests to your Christian testimony. If you have been away from Biola for less than two years, a pastoral reference is not required.

  • Admission Requirements

    • The student must be in good standing with Biola, as indicated on the returning student application.
