How to Apply

Our approach to admissions may be holistic, but our goal is singular: find the most well-rounded, academically accomplished and interesting students out there. We know that a diverse, passionate class of students makes Furman a better place. Yes, your grades, and rigor of curriculum are important, but our application process goes well beyond what’s on paper. We want to connect with you to know your story and learn more about all you will contribute to the Furman community. Connect with your admission counselor, come visit campus,  or attend a virtual session to help you decide if Furman is your perfect college home.
