Congratulations on your decision to attend Furman!
When you arrive here, you’ll begin to take advantage of our challenging academic programs, beautiful campus and outstanding faculty. But before that happens, we’d like to get you ready for the first day of class. From registering for summer orientation to completing required tasks for incoming students, this site will help you prepare for your first semester at Furman.
New@FU is Furman’s interactive online platform designed to assist with your transition to college. There are seven sections that will introduce you to various aspects of life at Furman, highlight support services and resources available to you, and outline expectations of all Furman students. The platform is designed for you to navigate at your own pace. In total, it will take about 1-2 hours to complete, but does not need to be completed in one sitting. A lot of information is covered, so you may refer back to the platform as often as needed.
Students staring at Furman in the fall semester will be able to access New@FU using the “Student Login” in May.
Get ready for the Furman experience.
