The Joshua Wilderness Institute is thrilled to be partnered with Biola University since the fall of 2022. This partnership allows all Joshua students to take four foundational courses meant to equip them for a life of following Christ.

Upon admittance to Biola, JWI students have the opportunity to demonstrate prior learning and be granted up to 12 credit hours for only $150 a course. That is equivalent to a whole semester of Bible units! JWI staff and Biola faculty will be working closely with students interested in receiving prior learning credit.

We believe Biola’s vision and mission aligns with our own here at JWI and we’re excited about the content, professors, and resources this partnership will provide.
