COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions

Will I receive a refund for my unused room and board costs, and when will I know how much I will receive?

Furman University will reimburse room and board at a prorated level and is currently processing refunds as expediently as possible. Reimbursement for room and board will be prorated to cover the period from March 16 to May 5. Room and board refund calculations are based on direct charges paid by the student for the semester after accounting for all institutional financial aid awarded. Students who receive refunds will see them posted to their accounts by April 9. To prepare for disbursement, please ensure that your direct deposit information is current in MyFurman to facilitate electronic transfer of funds.

Will I receive a refund for my parking costs?

Furman students that purchased a $95 annual parking pass will receive a refund of $10.

When will I be refunded for May Experience?

If you have your non-payroll bank information set up, then you will receive the direct deposit to your bank account on Friday, March 20, 2020.  If you don’t have your non-payroll bank information set up, a check will be mailed out from Furman to the home address on Friday, March 20, 2020.

How do I update my Non-Payroll Direct Deposit information?

Non-Payroll Direct Deposit information can be updated in MyFurman under the Financial Information heading. Once submitted, your update information takes immediate effect. For detailed instructions, please click here.

We prefer the refunded credit be kept on account and applied to charges in the fall semester, can Furman do this?

Yes. A student or person with authorized account access to a student’s account should make this request to enroll@furman.edu and include the student’s name & ID# in the request.

What is the impact on my Veteran’s benefits for this semester?

The Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) has indicated that they will continue to pay benefits regardless of the fact that the program has changed from resident training to online training. Also, students will continue to receive the same monthly housing allowance payments that they received for resident training until January 1, 2021, or until the school resumes normal operations of resident training. VA is working to immediately implement the new changes to address current and future school terms to ensure students continue to receive their education benefits. There is no action needed on the part of the student.

When is the last day of class?

The last day of class for the semester remains April 28th. Classes are being conducted through online and remote collaboration from March 23 through April.

When will Fall 2020 registration take place?

 Registration for fall 2020 will be delayed by one week to allow students and advisors more time for advising.  The registration dates will be as follows:

  • April 14th – Registration window for rising seniors opens at 5:00pm
  • April 20th – Registration window for rising juniors opens at 5:00pm
  • April 23rd – Registration window for rising sophomores opens at 5:00pm

Note: Any student planning to participate in study away this fall will be allowed to register for fall 2020 on-campus courses during their normal registration window.  A decision will be made soon as to the status of fall study away and any student that registers for on-campus courses will have those courses dropped at a later date and registered for a study away placeholder course.

When is the last day to withdraw from a course and receive a W?

The last day to withdraw from a class and receive a W has moved from March 27 to April 28.

What is the process for course withdrawal?

Students should complete the Course Withdrawal Request form, which is fillable online.  The form should be emailed to the instructor of the course, as well as the student’s advisor for approval.  Due to the current circumstances, email approvals are accepted in lieu of signatures.

Can courses still be taken Pass/No Pass if I am graduating in May?

The Pass-No/pass option has been extended for graduating Seniors through May 18.  Students should complete the Pass/No Pass request form and submit for approval.

What is the status of CLP credits for the spring term?

CLP events have been  suspended through June 3.  All enrolled students, not graduating in May, have been credited with 4 CLP credits for the spring term. For graduating seniors, CLPs will be awarded once we’ve confirmed that they have completed all other graduation requirements (GERs + major requirements).  An amount needed to bring the total to 32 will be awarded to seniors graduating in May.

What is the process for declaring a major?

Students should check with the respective department first to determine if there are specific requirements or processes for that major.  For most majors, students should complete the Field of Study Declaration form, which is fillable online. The form should be emailed to the Department Chair of the major for approval. The Chair will forward to Enrollment Services via email. Due to the current circumstances, email approvals are accepted in lieu of signatures.

I am a student employee, will I be paid for my regularly scheduled shifts that I am forced to miss due to the closure of campus?

Student employees that miss regularly scheduled work shifts will not be paid for hours that are not worked.

I am a student employee, may I work remotely?

Some student employment positions provide work that can be done remotely. This is only available to students whose supervisors are willing to oversee and approve their remote work. Please contact your supervisor to discuss.

I am a student employee with a Federal Work Study Award, can I continue to earn my Federal Work Study wages?

Students with a Federal Work Study award and a position with regularly scheduled shifts may be able to continue receiving payment from that award. Please contact your on-campus supervisor who will need to enter your regularly scheduled shifts into Workday for each pay period missed.
