Welcome to Graduate Financial Aid
Biola University is dedicated to helping students gain access to Christian higher education, especially those who would be unable to attend Biola without aid. It is our desire to provide financial assistance to students with demonstrated need, within the limits of the University's resources.
With this goal in mind, Biola holds to the following financial aid philosophy:
We will partner with the student and his or her family to arrange financing for the student's education, using the family's resources, the government's resources, and Biola's resources.
Demonstrated need will be measured by a consistent and equitable need-analysis system. To be fair to all students seeking aid, need must be based objectively on a family's financial resources — that is, on their ability to pay, not their willingness to pay.
Special circumstances will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and we use our professional judgement to determine when adjustments can be made.
