Off-campus Programs Biola University values experiential and cross-cultural learning .We are committed to providing opportunities for our students to participate in off-campus and study abroad programs. Off-campus programs offer a unique opportunity for students to make the world their class­ room, going beyond the confines of the traditional classroom experi­ ence. These are vital to our ability to fulfill our mission to educate students in mind and character and to impact the world for Christ. In most cases, students can participate in off-campus programs at the same cost of on-campus tuition and average room and board. Participating students may continue to qualify for federal, state and Biola aid. This allows students to continue to obtain the maximum aid possible while participating in an off-campus program. Students who are interested in this type of educational experience should contact the appropriate director of the program or the coordinator of Off-campus Programs in the Registrar's Office. These programs are open to juniors and seniors. All students participating in off-campus programs must complete the Off-campus Programs registration form (available at the Office of the Registrar or online at The faculty advisor for the program will help students determine their coursework. Curriculum Requirements Coursework taken through off-campus programs does not count toward resident unites at Biola for a major or minor. Students earning a Bachelor of Arts degree who take foreign languages while studying abroad (in CCCU or other off-campus programs) are advised to use the units as elective credit since the student could find difficulty in finding the second and third semester instruction in the languages not offered at Biola. Students earning a Bachelor of Science degree may be able to fulfill the language requirement while abroad as only 4 units are required.
