Center for Academic Success

The Center for Academic Success (CAS) provides students with many services that can help them succeed in their time at Furman.  They offer one-on-one meetings or small group workshops on study skills, time management, note-taking, exam preparation, and academic counseling.

CAS is also the home of two peer-support programs:

Success @ Furman

Success@Furman (aka Starfish) is a communication tool designed to connect students with campus resources. Large or small, good or bad, action required or not, we welcome any information you would like to share! Students may be sent reminders about support resources available to them, and campus resources will be aware of your concern and able to support that student in a manner consistent with your recommendations, actions, and classroom policies. The Academic Dean’s Office and the Center for Academic Success (CAS) monitor academic concerns, watching for students in need of support or swift intervention, and to identify concerning patterns or behaviors a student might be displaying across multiple courses. The Student Intervention Team (SIT), whose members include Student Life staff, the Academic Dean’s Office, case managers, counseling center staff, and representatives from Furman Police, SOAR, and other appropriate offices on campus, work to create a support plan for students who may be facing challenges beyond their academic endeavors.  

Student Office of Accessibility Resources (SOAR)

The SOAR office works with many departments on campus to provide reasonable accommodations for students with medical, physical or psychological conditions.  The SOAR website contains a wealth of information about academic accommodations and other accommodations, including Quick Links for access to the most frequently requested services.  SOAR is in the Earle Infirmary; enter through the back of the building. Check out this video as an overview of the SOAR office.

Counseling Center

The Counseling Center is available to help students with a range of challenges related to mental health and academic life.  Their website includes instructions for students to make an appointment as well as some resources for helping students in distress.  They also offer various support groups for students on topics such as grief, stress & anxiety, and managing emotions.  The Counseling Center is in the Early Infirmary; enter through the back of the building.
