Welcome, Concordia Students!

Corban University expresses prayers and support in response to the announcement of the closure of Concordia University in Portland. Corban President Dr. Sheldon C. Nord reached out to Concordia President Thomas Ries on Monday to share his deepest sympathies about the closure of a long-time academic partner.

Dr. Nord said, “The closing of Concordia is a significant loss to higher education in Oregon. Our prayers go out to the families affected by this transition – including families of staff, faculty, administration, and students – that Christ would provide comfort and direction in this difficult time. We are saddened to lose this prestigious academic partner.”

Corban’s Admissions team stands ready to assist students in search of a higher education home following Concordia’s closure and would be honored to offer transfer students a place to complete their education.

How will my credits transfer?

Yes! Corban will match any scholarship amount you are receiving currently from Concordia University for traditional undergraduate studies, plus give you an additional $4,000 scholarship! With the exception of athletic scholarships, we will add $4,000 to any amount you’re receiving from Concordia.

If you qualify for more in Corban transfer scholarships (based on your college GPA) than what you received from Concordia, you will receive the higher amount. And don’t forget that additional $4,000!

Unfortunately, this scholarship matching is not applicable to online students, graduate students, or student athletes. However, if you’re interested in playing a varsity sport, contact the Admissions Office and we’ll connect you with the coach today!
