The May Experience is an optional three-week term following the spring semester that allows students to explore topics across many different departments in courses that are not offered in other terms during the academic year.​​ May Experience courses earn two credits!

Students can choose from:

1) a wide variety of experiential learning courses on Furman’s campus (the On-Campus May Experience). The tuition cost for May Experience courses is included in the comprehensive fee for the Spring semester.

2) study-away programs that take students to destinations around the world. Applications for study-away programs are made through Furman’s Rinker Center for Study Away and International Education, with an application deadline the preceding November.
