Sunday, August 26 – Thursday, August 30, 2018
Torrey Honors Admissions at 562-906-4555 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Sunday August 26th - Thursday August 30th
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 2018 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 will automatically be applied to your student account when you register for your Torrey cohort. This one-time fee 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 26th. 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.
