Welcome!

The Advising Center equips, educates, and inspires students to establish curricular and life goals, achieve academic success, and value a Christ-centered academic journey.

Academic Advisors

The Advising Center and an assigned faculty advisor in your chosen major work together to support your academic success at Biola. Please login to my.biola and locate your advisor's name and email address in the top section of your Degree Audit.
