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.

To have charges removed, you must drop the class or classes by the deadline (Close of Registration). You will not be dropped from your classes for non-payment. 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 loan between you and Corban University and 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 a court of law may determine as reasonable for attorney’s fees and court cost. Oregon State law applies to any dispute over payment.
