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?

As an incoming student, you can take one or two Bible courses this summer before your first semester at Biola. These courses will cost 70% less than during the semester, giving you a head start on your Bible minor, and you will be introduced 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:

BBST 103: Biblical Interpretation and Spiritual Formation (3 credits)

Online: July 6 - August 14
