Students enter Biola under the catalog year of their initial enrollment, but may request to be moved under a subsequent catalog year while enrolled, and prior to their graduation.
Changing your catalog year will bring you under all of the privileges and responsibilities of the new catalog year, and you will be responsible to complete all of that catalog's degree requirements in totality.
Biola recommends you consult with your academic advisor or graduation counselor prior to changing your catalog year in order to fully understand how the curricular implications will impact you specifically.
Financial aid and student loan recipients, student athletes, veteran education benefit recipients, and F-1 international students are likewise encouraged to consult with the respective University offices in order to fully understand how the curricular implications of your intended catalog change may impact your benefits and responsibilities.
Once you have decided to change your catalog year, request a change using the catalog change request form.
