How to Apply

Corban University welcomes your application, and we will carefully review it, along with each of your references, transcripts and test scores. We are committed to a policy of non-discrimination with regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.

NOTE: An international student is one who will be attending a college or university in the United States without residency or citizenship, typically on an F-1 visa. If you are a citizen of the United States or Canada, you may not need to complete the International Student Application. If you are unsure, please contact the Corban Admission Office at admissions@corban.edu.

Fall Semester Application Deadline: April 1

Spring Semester Application Deadline: October 1

To apply for admission, please submit:

    1. International Student Application for Admission. Complete the application for admission in its entirety. An application without completed essays, contact information, or listed references will be considered incomplete until that information is provided.
    2. Application Fee. A non-refundable application fee of $40 USD must accompany the application. A money order can be made payable to Corban University.

      Send a check or money order made payable to Corban University, with the applicant’s name indicated on the memo-line, to the address below:

    3. Christian Character Reference Form. This form must be filled out by someone who is not a family member or relative who can share more about your personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
    4. Official Transcripts. You must provide official transcripts from each secondary and post-secondary school attended. These transcripts must be officially translated into English and must be sent directly from the school(s). If you received post-secondary education that you hope to receive credit for when transferring, then all transcripts must be evaluated by a transcript evaluation service such as World Education Services (WES) or InCred.

      If you are a recruited athlete, please use InCred for your transcript evaluation.

      *Corban University recognizes the International Baccalaureate (IB) high school program. Three semester hours of lower division credit are granted for each Higher Level exam passed with a score of 5, 6 or 7. The University will also grant four semester hours of elective lower division credit for the Theory of Knowledge if the student has received the IB diploma. A maximum of 24 semester hours may be granted.

    5. Official Test Score. All applicants must turn in official test results from at least one of the following tests: TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, or ACT. International students who have a sufficient SAT or ACT score for admission are not required to turn in English language test results. International students whose first language is English can choose to take the SAT or ACT test instead of the TOEFL to be eligible for an academic scholarship.


Minimum TOEFL Scores:
70 or higher (iBT – internet)
520 or higher (paper-based)

Minimum IELTS Score:
6 or higher

Minimum SAT Score:
990 or higher

Minimum ACT Score:

After all of the required documents are submitted along with a fully completed application, an admission decision can be made. Admission decisions are typically made within a week of your final document being submitted.
