Campus Visit Update: In recognition of the increasing community spread of COVID nationwide and in an effort to ensure a safe return to campus for all faculty, staff, and students, we are not currently offering on-campus tours.   We are disappointed that we are unable to meet you in person right now, but we look forward to welcoming you to campus in the near future!

In the interim, we are offering a wide array of virtual visit options to make sure that you can learn more about life at Furman and continue to actively engage with our community.  Whether you join us online for a virtual information session, a student-led virtual tour, a student panel, or one of our (soon to be released) fall online events, we can’t wait to share Furman with you in new and creative ways.    We invite you to visit our Explore Furman from Home page to learn more about all visit opportunities available to prospective students!

The Office of Admissions staff are working remotely but are at your service should you have any questions or need any assistance! Please email us at admissions@furman.edu or contact your admission counselor if you have any questions or would like to get connected with faculty or current students, as available. Thank you for your interest in Furman!

For updates regarding our COVID response, please continue to monitor this page and Furman’s COVID-19 website.
