Sunday, August 20 – Wednesday, August 23, 2017
Torrey Honors Admissions at 562-906-4555 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Sunday, August 20th - Wednesday, August 23rd
Registration will require you to login with your @biola.edu email account. Please let us know if you have any trouble registering.
Students who will be attending the Torrey Honors Institute in the Fall of 2017 are required to attend the Torrey Honors orientation ("Torrientation"). During the week incoming students will meet their cohort groups, hear from the Torrey Honors faculty, and learn everything they need to know to succeed in the program. Students must register for Torrientation at the link above. In order to keep up with the announcements about Torrientation, be sure to check your Biola email account.
Please note that the registration fee is your "freshmen year fee." It is the only student fee you will pay in Torrey, and it covers the cost of Torrientation and your two mandatory Freshmen theology seminars which will take place later in the semester.
Early Move In: Incoming students to Torrey Honors will move in early on Sunday August, 20th. There is no additional fee for early housing, and students will move into their permanent dorms. Commuting students will still need to participate in Torrientation even though they are not moving onto campus.
Meals: Although student meal plans are not active during Torrientation, we will provide all meals for students during Torrientation.
Transportation: We are happy to offer incoming students a ride from the airport to Biola's campus! The Torrientation staff will be available to pick students up, which you can indicate on your registration form. We do have limited seats, so we ask students arriving with their families to use an airport shuttle.

New student orientation for Biola begins the evening of Thursday, August 24th. Torrey students will have the morning and afternoon of the 24th to finish settling into their rooms, run final errands, or rest.
Parents: as an integral part of this transition we hope that you will be able to join us for one or both of the events listed below! On Sunday, August 20th you can assist with move in, see the campus, and join us for the evening as we begin the week. You're also invited to join us for our closing reception on Wednesday, August 23rd, where you'll meet your student's cohort, their orientation leaders, and hear stories from the week.
