See below for advice. Regardless of which category you fall into, the Advising Center is here to serve you! We have full time Academic Advisors specifically assigned to guide undeclared students through the process of exploring majors. You can schedule an appointment with your advisor by coming to the Advising Center, emailing us, or calling 562.903.4782.
1. Look at all the majors offered by Biola and settle on one you are interested in most (be sure to do plenty of research, which could include visiting the Advising Center, the Career Center, the department of preferred major, etc.);
2. Check to see if the major you want to declare has an application process or classes that need to be taken beforehand. If so, visit the major's department to get more information;
3. Once you've decided on a major, declare it using a major change form!
Just pick up the appropriate form at the Office of the Registrar or download it here. Follow the instructions on the form, and return it to the Registrar. For assistance or advising regarding changes in your studies, please see the Advising Center.
