Only enable your VPN if you meet the following criteria:

  • You are on a public WiFi network (e.g. McDonalds, Starbucks, Public Library). And,
  • You need access to Biola systems that are only available when connected to the Biola network. Examples include:
    • files.biola.edu
    • Banner
    • Cognos
    • Perceptive Content
    • Evisions
    • BRIM
    • DegreeWorks
    • Self-Service systems for installing Biola software (KBOX and JSS)

Notices:

  • If you are using your personal computer to access the above Biola systems remotely, please contact IT for alternative options. You should only use a Biola-issued computer to access sensitive Biola data and information.
  • Biola has limited VPN licensing. If you are using VPN to access specific files and systems, or install software via Self-Service, please disconnect as soon as you've downloaded them.
