Who can register?
Enrollment in summer session courses is available to all students admitted as degree-seeking undergraduates at Furman. If you are interested in enrolling for summer sessions but have not been admitted to the undergraduate program you must complete a non-degree seeking student application available from the Registrar.

What courses can I take?
Plan now to speak with your advisor. They can assist you in composing a list of possible courses available in the upcoming summer session that will make sense for your academic goals. You must be cleared by your advisor before you can take action on any enrollment request, electronically or otherwise, for the summer session. You may enroll for up to 16 credits (no more than 8 credits in either session) during the two summer sessions. Remember too, examine the session start and end dates closely to make sure they fit with the rest of your summer plans.

What do I need to do to register?
All students may now use the tools available via the Registration menu of MyFurman to register for the summer session. Follow the instructions provided on-line to navigate your way through the process.

You may also use paper-based enrollment requests to get yourself registered for the summer session. In fact, in a good number of situations (courses requiring instructor or department permission and after initial tuition invoices have been generated) this will be the only acceptable method. If you need or want to use this route, you should complete the enrollment request in full. Your written request is important to ensure that we take action on your enrollment exactly as you instruct. For your convenience, a.PDF version of the enrollment request is available for you to print, complete, and submit.

Where do I register?
Using the registration menu tools, you can register from anywhere you can sustain a connection to MyFurman. On the other hand, a paper enrollment request may be submitted in a variety of ways. You can deliver your request directly to us in the Administration Building, Room 004. If you can’t make it to campus, fax or mail your request. Reach us by fax at (864) 294-3551 or mail:

  • Furman University
  • Registrar
  • 3300 Poinsett Highway
  • Greenville, SC 29613-5957

When can I register?
Your opportunity to register for summer courses begins early each spring semester. Students may use the registration tools to register through early May. We encourage you to register between these two dates as seating in courses is on a first-come, first-serve basis. You should be mindful that courses can be canceled for lack of enrollment if we don’t know about your interest. We typically need to make decisions of this sort about two-to-three weeks before courses begin. Check out the important dates page to find out more specifics.

How do I change my schedule once I’ve already registered?
You can change your summer course schedule, using CAP through mid-April or a paper enrollment request, through the end of business on the day the first 10% of scheduled course meetings conclude. Enrollment in courses is closed at the end of this period for each individual course section. You are permitted to withdraw from courses through the first 50% of scheduled course meetings for the section in question; a “W” mark will be posted on your permanent academic record indicating your withdrawal. Check out the important dates page for more details.

What about auditing, pass-no pass grading, and other academic regulations?
You may enroll in courses on a zero credit basis by registering as an auditor. You can register to audit courses until the conclusion of the course adjustment period for each course section. A separate tuition rate has been established for auditing courses. Be sure to complete an audit request if you will avail yourself of this option.

You may also elect a pass-no pass grading option for selected courses that you have already registered, consistent with the pass-no pass policy as stated in the University Catalog.

Summer session courses operate on the same academic principles as any other instruction at Furman. Consequently, the same academic regulations apply. Please refer to the University Catalog for more detail.

Course Load
Students may enroll for up to 16 credits during the summer session. However, we strongly encourage students to consult with their academic advisor if they are considering enrollment in more than one-course meeting during the same session because of the very intense nature and short duration of summer session courses.
