At Furman, we treat each applicant as an individual. To that end, we’ve tailored three different application processes to meet each student’s particular needs.
If Furman is your first choice and you are confident that you will attend if admitted, apply Early Decision. Furman’s Early Decision is binding, meaning that if you are admitted, you agree to withdraw your applications from all other institutions and commit to enroll at Furman.
Early Action allows you to apply and learn about your admission decision early. With Early Action, you’re still free to investigate other schools.
If you want to keep your options open and need the most time to complete admission applications, apply Regular Decision.
Check with your guidance counselor to make sure he or she has completed your School Report. The report tells us about the courses and programs offered by your school.

If you do decide to submit your test scores and submit multiple test results, the Admission Committee will select the scores that offer you the greatest advantage in the admission review process. Furman’s school code for the SAT is 5222, and the code for ACT is 3858. If you do not wish for us to consider your scores, please indicate so on the Common Application.
