All housing applicants must pay their enrollment deposits and a $250 housing reservation deposit before the time they complete the housing Application, and must maintain a $250 housing deposit balance the entire time during which they live in Biola housing.
Incoming applicants to the university who decide (a) not to attend Biola, (b) to postpone enrollment, or (c) not to live in housing may request a refund of the housing deposit in writing to the Housing Office by the following deadlines:
Fall applicants: on or before July 1
Spring applicants: on or before December 1
Failure to give written notice of cancellation or postponement by the dates above will result in forfeiture of the housing reservation deposit.
The housing deposit will be held by the university while the student lives in housing.
Students will receive their housing deposit refunded to their university student account within three (3) months of the end of the academic year if they fulfill their housing contract for the full academic year and do not reserve housing for the upcoming academic year.
Residents who do not fulfill the housing contract for the full academic year will forfeit their housing deposit.
