Types of Aid
Corban students are eligible for aid from federal and state programs, as well as Corban's own aid programs. We encourage all students to look for financial aid from outside sources as well. Your local library and High School counselor are good places to begin your search for local outside scholarships. On a national level, try Fastweb.com. Prior to March 1, Oregon residents can fill out the application at GetCollegeFunds.org for private scholarships on a state level. In order to receive any federal, state, or institutional aid, students must first fill out a FAFSA.
Federal Direct Stafford Loans:
Stafford loans can be awarded to all Corban students, with Subsidized Staffords going to students with financial need. The Federal Direct Loan program eliminates the need for loan applications, outside lenders, guarantee agencies, and paper loan checks. Corban will provide the student with everything needed to receive a Federal Direct Stafford Loan. The maximum loan amounts depend on the student's year in school and total financial need.
