Summer Orientation focuses on your academic path at Furman and the nuts and bolts of class selection. Attend one of seven sessions dedicated to learning more about navigating the academic transition from high school, attending a liberal arts institution, and preparing for fall course selection. The day will culminate with a one-on-one meeting with a summer academic advisor to discuss fall course options available to you.
Summer Orientation sessions will be held on the following dates:
View the New Student Summer Orientation schedule here and the Parent & Family Orientation schedule here. You will receive a detailed schedule specific to your session at check-in.
The cost to attend Summer Orientation is $75 per student, which includes registration of one parent or guest. Additional guests can register to attend for $30 per person. Register for Summer Orientation here!
The deadline to register for Summer Orientation or make adjustments to your registration is May 27, 2022.
While we highly encourage new students to participate in our in-person Summer Orientation program, we understand that may not be an option for everyone. There will be a number of virtual orientation opportunities for students and their families to participate in throughout the summer, including virtual academic advising sessions. More information about these opportunities will be available later this spring.
If you are unable to attend Summer Orientation, please complete this form to let us know.
Keep in mind that Parent & Family Orientation takes place during Summer Orientation, and as new students prepare for the academic programs on our campus, your family will be given an overview of what to expect during your four years at Furman.
In addition to Summer Orientation, we will be offering a series of webinars throughout the summer to introduce parents and family members to available resources at Furman. Below, you will see a schedule of webinars, as well as the link to register. For those unable to participate during the scheduled times, recordings of the webinars will be posted to this site within a week of the webinar date.
Parents and family members are encouraged to participate in or view the recording of the first two webinars prior to attending Summer Orientation.
