Biola University’s Doctrinal Statement remains the foundational document regarding the theological position of the University. Biola’s position from its inception has been and remains Christian, Protestant and theologically conservative. Prospective and existing employees must affirm that their personal theological beliefs are in agreement with the Biola Doctrinal Statement. A prospective or an existing employee’s church affiliation will be considered in determining his or her understanding of and compliance with Biola’s theological position.

All positions at Biola University require applicants to pass a criminal background check as a condition of employment. This includes a review of any pending charges or convictions. Once a conditional offer of employment is extended, Biola utilizes the services of HireRight, a third-party agency, to conduct a criminal background check. Biola also reserves the right to expand the search if applicable for the position (e.g., a Department of Transportation search for positions that require driving).
