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. Or print out the returning student application and mail it in. Every advantage goes to the early applicant.

    2. Submit a non-refundable $15 returning student application fee with your application in the form of a check or money order. The student's name must be on the check.
