Undergrad Campus Visit

At Biola, we recommend you tour the campus, visit a chapel and meet with a counselor. However, the campus visit is meant to be customized to meet your needs. Please provide us the following information, and make sure to tell us everything that we can do to serve you best.

If you are an organization wanting to visit us as a group, please schedule a group visit with us.

Please know that most departments close at noon on Fridays during the summer (through August 9). The Admissions Office will be open until 4:30pm with limited counselor availability. Please email carla.tipton@biola.edu with questions. Thank you!

Our annual Torrey Memorial Bible Conference is October 9-11 and final exams will be held the week of December 16. There will be no classes, chapel, or faculty appointments on these dates.

Please note that campus tours conducted by outside organizations without the knowledge or permission of the Biola Office of Admissions are not considered official university campus tours. Students participating in such tours will not be provided with a letter from Biola constituting excuse for absence from school ("school dismissal letter"). If you plan to participate in a tour conducted by an outside organization and wish to verify the organization's status with the university, please contact the Biola Office of Admissions.
