Smart Start Program

Are you at the point where you just can't wait for your first semester at Biola to begin? Do you wish you could use your summer more strategically and get a head start on college?

For the first time ever, you can take three units of Bible the summer before your first semester. Taking this class over the summer costs 75% less than during the semester, gives you a head start on your Bible minor, and it introduces you to the people you are going to be with for the rest of your college years. It's the smart way to start at Biola.

Classes Offered:

Note: You can only register for one class.
