Current, enrolled, Biola students who are meeting the BSR through qualifying coursework, or through a combination of qualifying coursework, passage of CBEST sections, and official qualifying score reports (SAT, ACT, AP exams) should fill out this form. Submitted forms will be reviewed by a credential analyst.
Official transcripts must show passage of courses in reading, writing, or mathematics. Courses must have been taken at a regionally accredited college or university for credit, passed with a grade of B- or higher, be degree applicable, and be 3 semester units. Qualifying coursework does not include professional development, continuing education units, in-service training, or workshops.
A course that does not fall within the indicated areas below may still qualify with an additional letter of explanation. A letter from the registrar or relevant department chair of the college or university must state that a course passed by the applicant covered reading, writing, or mathematics at the same level as one of the listed courses. Such a letter could also attest that a single course sufficiently indicates proficiency in reading and writing combined.
