Biola students are placed on the Dean's List to honor those with a grade point average of 3.6 or higher while enrolled in twelve of more credit units and whose cumulative grade point average is at least a 3.2. This past spring, 33 percent of Biola students achieved this academic goal.
"Inclusion on the Biola Dean's List is an indication that this student is performing exceptionally well in a rigorous academic program," said Patricia Pike, vice provost for undergraduate education.
Biola's grade point average requirement for the Dean's List is one of the highest among Southern California Christian universities.
Biola University, an "Up and Coming" university according to U.S. News & World Report, is a private Christian university located in Southern California on the border of Los Angeles and Orange counties in the city of La Mirada.
