State Prepaid & 529 Plans

Generally, this is the process for Prepaid/529 Plans:

  • Parents/Students contact their Prepaid/529 Plan, and notify them of intent to use it for the academic year.
  • Provide any necessary documentation to the plan. Plans may require students to complete a Transfer Authorization request before your plan benefits will be paid. You can assess the transfer authorization within your plans account.
  • Furman will invoice the prepaid plans after Furman’s web add/drop ends (August 27, 2021 for Fall 2021).  Depending on the plan, payments arrive between 30-45 days.
  • 529 payment plans should not be used for Furman’s payment plans. 529 lump sum payments are recommended.

For 529 Savings/Prepaid Plans:

  • Contact your plan as early as possible and follow any instructions provided by your savings plan. This often involves completing a withdrawal request through your plan.
  • Please ensure that your withdrawal request is submitted early enough to allow ample time for processing and mailing before tuition due dates.
  • If an invoice is requested, please provide a copy of the current student billing statement, which is found in the Finances application in Workday.
  • Please have funds sent directly to the school, the following information will be needed: Student’s First and Last Name, Student’s Furman ID number

For Remaining balances after PrePaid and/or 529:

If you have a balance greater than the amount that your prepaid and/or 529 plan is covering, you have the option to pay the remaining balance by August 15, 2021, or you can register for a payment plan.  Current Balance Due – (PrePaid + 529) = Remaining Balance

Comprehensive Fee Policy and Refund Policy

Furman assesses a comprehensive tuition fee for degree-seeking, undergraduate day students who are enrolled for up to 20 credits in the fall or spring semesters. Requested exemptions to the comprehensive fee policy should adhere to the catalog requirements.

Tuition Insurance

Furman University has partnered with GradGuard™ to offer tuition insurance from Allianz Global Assistance.

The tuition protection plan is like an extension of our refund policy. It can reimburse up to 100% of your nonrefundable school costs after a mid semester withdrawal for a covered illness, injury, psychological condition, and more—protecting your investment in higher education. Visit the GradGuard™ website for more details.

Insurance must be purchased prior to the first day of classes. Coverage extends through the end of that semester. Tuition insurance is completely optional. The agreement you enter into is with GradGuard, not with Furman University.

  • 1098-T

1098-T forms are provided to all students with qualified tuition and related expenses each January. The form reports amounts paid based on the transaction date. Accordingly, spring semester charges are reported in the previous calendar year if you register prior to January 1.

Student Health Insurance

Furman does not provide a health insurance plan for its domestic students.  International students are required to purchase a plan provided by EIIA.  The Earle Student Health Center on campus operates like other physician offices/health practices. Students should bring their health insurance card with them when visiting the center. Students’ primary insurance provider will be billed. Please check with your family insurance provider to make sure that the student will be adequately covered while away at school. Your insurance provider may require an enrollment certification for your student.

Furman does provide all undergraduate day students with a Student Sickness Benefits Plan (at no additional cost) that will generally cover co-payments. Find out more about this coverage.
