Undergraduate Student Handbook & Guide to University Policies


Revised August 8, 2014

About This Handbook

This Handbook supersedes and replaces all previously published and/or online versions of the Biola Undergraduate Student Handbook.

Each student, by enrolling at Biola University, is responsible for reviewing and adhering to all published student life policies and University standards.

While the policies and standards outlined in this Handbook provide students an effective set of guidelines for personal conduct, the University retains the right to enact additional policies and regulations, correct errors, or to modify existing policies as it determines. Updated policies and regulations may be found under the Student Handbook section of the Biola University Student Life website. New or modified policies are effective immediately upon publication (including online publication) unless otherwise noted.

In the event of any conflict or discrepancy between this online version and the downloadable PDF version, the online version shall be considered authoritative and take precedence.

Biola University does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, age, gender, or disability in administration of its educational policies, admissions, financial aid, employment, educational programs, or activities.

For information about this Handbook, please contact the office of the Dean of Students, at 562-903-4874 (on campus, ext. 4874).
