Attending college is an important step in one's life. Higher education offers students a variety of valuable experiences. Even though the experiences gained outside of the classroom are of considerable value, the central value of a college experience continues to be found in the superior classroom instruction.
Students who manage their study time effectively, attend class regularly, get involved in class discussions and take good notes typically do well academically. However, not all students find the transition to higher education an easy one.
At Corban, one of the first places that students who are struggling with class work seek assistance is the Student Support Office. The staff can provide details about the services and can meet with prospective students by appointment.
Interested students are encouraged to contact the office by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 503-375-7012.

The goal of Corban University's Counseling Services is to provide high quality and confidential mental health counseling and consultation to Corban students. Focused counseling can help students successfully resolve and manage problems that interfere with academic progress. If concerns or problems are of a long-term nature or require medication, the counseling staff will work with the individual to assess his or her needs and the available resources, both on campus and in the community. All counselors subscribe to the ethics codes of the National Association of Social Workers, and the Oregon State Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists.
You may arrange appointments with a counselor by calling 503-375-7010. Most students are given appointments within one to two days of their request. If the students need are urgent, every attempt will be made to see them the same day.
Is it Confidential?
Yes. All information gathered in counseling, including the fact that a student has come into the center, is held in strict confidence. No information is released to college officials, faculty members, parents, or outside agencies except upon written request by the students and what the law requires counselors to report.
What does it cost?
Counseling services, workshops, and group sessions are free to all students.
Workshops and ongoing groups are occasionally offered:
- Alcohol / drug problems

International Student Support
Considering studying in the United States? Corban may be the place for you. With a growing international student population currently representing over 12 nations, Corban offers an intimate environment to get to know other international students from all over the world.
New students are introduced to American culture through a fall orientation as well as a series of cultural discussions throughout the semester. Each new international student is placed with an American roommate to help make the adjustments needed to be successful for studying in America.
Hiking nearby Silver Creek Falls, exploring Oregon’s capital city of Salem and carving pumpkins at a Harvest Party are just a few of the events that await you during your first semester at Corban. There are plenty of ways to get involved with other international students as well as community life in general here. World Outreach Week and the International Fair are just a couple of ways at Corban that we see what God is doing around the world. Some international students have even been known to go on mission trips to other countries!
