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. So, yes, grades, rigor of curriculum matter, and test scores matter, but our application process goes well beyond what’s on paper. We want to connect with you on a personal level and know your story.
