Payment Options and Information

Allow us to help you consider your options, take action, and get your financial plan in place for the coming year.

We want to make it simple for you. Once you receive your Financial Aid Award Letter, there are a couple of ways you can pay the remaining balance. It is our desire to work with you to find one of our payment plan options that will make your Corban education affordable.

Payment Options


Option 1: Pay your semester balance in full by the date deadline.

Advantages : Pay EARLY and be done! No finance charges.

  • Institutional charges not covered by scholarships, grants and loans are due on the first day of every semester.
  • Student accounts not paid in full by the due date and not on an approved payment plan may incur a monthly finance charge of 1.5% of the outstanding balance.
  • You are able to pay online at by logging into your Populi account. You can pay by Visa, Discover, MasterCard, American Express or your debit card with an added 1.5% convenience fee. You may also pay online by e-check with no added fee.

Option 2: Set up a Monthly Payment Plan for the Semester

Advantages: Plans may be spread over the semester into 5 monthly payments and can be combined with a partial down-payment and financial aid.

  • There is a $55 fee per semester to participate in the payment plan.
  • Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have at (503) 375-7030 or

Monthly Payment Plans must be kept current. Any monthly payment not made on time is considered delinquent and is subject to a late payment fee of $25 for each late monthly payment. If you miss two monthly payments, your payment plan will be deactivated and your balance will be subject to the 1.5% monthly finance charge.

Option 3: Financing with a Parent PLUS or other Private Loan

Advantages: If making monthly payments is not a feasible option for your family, or you need a full or partial loan to make your payments affordable, there are resources for you.


Payment Information

Check Payments

We accept personal checks, cashier checks and money orders for tuition and fee payments that are given in person at the Student Accounts Office on campus or mailed to Corban University c/o Student Accounts, 5000 Deer Park Dr. SE, Salem, OR 97317. Make checks payable to Corban University. Please list the account name and student ID# in the memo line of your check.

Electronic Check Payments (E-Checks)

When you choose to pay via electronic check through your secure student portal, you will provide your bank ABA routing number in addition to your bank account number. There is no fee for payments of this type.

Refund Policy

If your financial aid award exceeds your cost of tuition, fees, and books, you may be eligible to receive excess funds. When funds post to your account, Student Accounts will audit your account and automatically refund excess funds within 14 days of the funds being posted. Refunds are processed via check and will be available to be picked up in the Student Accounts office or will be mailed to the address on record. Please allow the full 14 days for processing before calling to check the status of your refund.

Outstanding Student Account Balance

Failure to meet arranged payment plan terms may result in plan termination. Delinquent monthly accounts and any deferred payment arrangements incur service charges. Continuous nonpayment may result in an administrative withdrawal from enrollment and may prohibit the student from registering in subsequent semesters and obtaining official and unofficial transcripts until such obligations are satisfied. Diplomas and transcripts are not released to any student until their student account balance is zero. In addition to withholding transcripts, records, or diplomas until all university expenses are satisfied, Corban reserves the right to preclude students with past due balances from representing the university in public activities or events. Students experiencing legitimate extenuating circumstances relating to their financial situation are encouraged to meet with Student Accounts personnel for financial counseling.

Student Responsibilities

When you register for a class, you agree to pay for it, and you will be responsible for all charges and any grade you receive, whether or not you attend. You are responsible for full payment of all charges on your account, even if another party is paying. If you are under 18 years of age, you will be held liable for any charges on your account under ORS 348.105.

By registering for classes at Corban University you agree that tuition, fees and other applicable charges incurred will be considered an educational agreed upon debt between you and Corban University that is non-dischargeable under Section 523(a), (8) of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. You are further agreeing that if you fail to make any payments as prescribed, your account may be submitted to a collection agency and applicable collections charges may be added to your account balance due. In case legal action is instituted to collect on your account, you are agreeing to pay, in addition to the costs and disbursements provided by law, such additional sums as court of law may determine as reasonable for attorney’s fees and court cost. Oregon State law applies to any dispute over payment.
