Corban University is looking for the next generation of students who will make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ.

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.

You are a First-Year Student if…

  • You’ve graduated from high school.
  • You have not enrolled in college after your high school graduation.

If you took advanced placement (AP) courses or completed college-level classes before you graduated from high school but not after you graduated, you are still considered a first-year student.

If you’ve taken college courses after high school, you’re a transfer student. Click here to learn more about transfer admissions.
