In consideration of illness, misplaced/lost ID cards, occasional irresolvable time conflicts, or tardiness, some of the mandatory requirement may be "made up" by listening to recordings of Chapel sessions. Conference make-ups must be done using Conference recordings (see bottom of this page).
- Download and print out the Chapel/Conference Makeup Form (PDF).
- Select a Chapel/Conference recording from the list below (recordings may be mp3s or YouTube videos).
- Open or download the recording (your browser configuration decides this) by clicking on it.
- Listen conscientiously to the recording you selected.
- Complete the Chapel/Conference Makeup Form. Your responses MUST be handwritten.
- There is a $1-per-makeup processing fee (i.e., turning in 10 chapel makeups and 2 conference makeups = $12). Cash/Checks only. Checks payable to Biola University. Cash must be exact change.
- Turn in Chapel/Conference Makeup Form & fee to Chapel Accountability, Student Services Bldg. Office is open M-F 830am-4pm.
Makeups due by date of final chapel of semester: May 15 at 4:30pm
Makeups received without correct payment will not be processed.
