Admission Requirements

Corban welcomes Christian students who value a comprehensive Christian education and meet the university admissions criteria.

The University seeks students who are able to present strong academic records and a clear testimony of faith in Jesus Christ. The Admissions Committee also evaluates each applicant’s ability to succeed in college and agreement with the Statement of Faith and lifestyle policy of the University.

Freshman Admission Requirements

If you have graduated from high school and not been enrolled in college after your high school graduation, you are considered a freshman student. For admission purposes, you are still considered a freshman if you took advanced placement courses or completed college-level classes before you graduated from high school.

We look forward to reviewing your application and giving you an admission decision quickly once we receive all the pieces to complete your application:

  1. Application
    We encourage you to apply the summer before or fall of your senior year of high school, but applications are accepted on a rolling basis. It’s quick and easy to get started!
  2. Personal Faith Statement
    In the application, you will be asked to briefly describe your personal relationship with Jesus Christ and respond to a few questions about your faith.
  3. Christian Character Reference
    You will need to provide the name and contact information for a reference who is familiar with your Christian faith. It is recommended that this person be a leader in your church. Your reference should have known you for at least one year and must not be a relative.
  4. High School GPA
    Report your GPA on your application and then have a copy of your final high school transcript sent to Corban after you graduate. Corban recommends a minimum high school GPA of 2.7 (cumulative, unweighted). The average GPA for first-time freshmen at Corban is 3.5.We recommend four years of English, three years of math and social studies, and two years of science and a foreign language.

  5. SAT, ACT, or CLT Scores or Test-Optional Alternative

      • SAT (code 4956) – minimum score 990
      • ACT (code 0477) – minimum score 19
      • CLT – minimum score 64
    • Instead of test scores, you may also submit one of the following:
      • Academic Reference: This should be an adult, typically a teacher, who is familiar with your academic achievements and is not a relative.
      • Personal Essay, answering these three questions:
        1) What do you plan to do in college to ensure academic success?
        2) How has your high school education prepared you for university studies?
        3) Why are you excited to study at Corban University?
  6. Official college transcripts (if applicable)
    If you have taken any college courses while in high school, please have those transcripts sent to Corban as well.
