Transferring Courses Into Biola: Overview

Equivalency Tool

The transfer course equivalency tool is a resource you can use to look up courses that may be taken at other colleges or universities for transfer credit to Biola. We do not have formal articulation agreements with these schools. The tool is provided to aid students in choosing courses at other schools with the intention of transferring them to Biola University.

The course results listed in the transfer equivalency tool are from many California community colleges, a few California state universities, and other colleges (both in California and out of state) from which students have transferred coursework. If courses appear on these lists, there is no need for a Transfer Petition Form to transfer them for credit. However, if a specific class is required for major or GE credit, and is not articulated as such, submit a Transfer Petition Form.


Transfer Process

To transfer courses to Biola, you need to have transcripts from the school at which the courses were taken sent to Biola for evaluation. In order to be considered official, all transcripts must be sent directly from the transferring college to Biola's Office of Admissions (if you are an incoming student) or the Office of the Registrar (if you are a current Biola student). Transcripts hand-carried into the office are not considered official.
