If you're interested in studying away, we don't want financial matters to deter you. In fact, the cost for most of our semester study away programs is comparable to a semester on Furman's campus.
- Students may apply their financial aid to all of our approved semester programs (Faculty-Led, Affiliate and Exchange)
- Included with each program are course credits, all-in country program-related travel, housing, some or most meals, and international health insurance.
- MayX courses range from $3000-$6000 depending on location and itinerary.
Students may continue to apply merit scholarships or need-based financial aid toward approved faculty-led, affiliate and exchange semester programs.
- Students with demonstrated financial need may apply for the financial need-based Study Away Scholarship for a semester, summer, or MayX program.
- Many affiliate and exchange programs offer scholarship opportunities and we encourage Furman students to apply for those funding sources.
- Students may be eligible to apply for outside funding through national or international governmental scholarships, working as a program social media blogger/ambassador, or applying for aid through your current leadership clubs and organizations.
Students can recieve major, minor, GER, and general university credit while on study away.
- Most students earn 15-18 credit hours on semester programs.
- Students on a semester study away faculty-led, affiliate, and exchange program are not considered enrolled on the Furman campus and therefore have their total CLP requirement adjusted accordingly. Students on a semester study away faculty-led, affiliate, and exchange program are not required to complete the 4 CLP credits for that semester, as they are not enrolled in on-campus courses.
- Students recieve 2 Furman credits on MayX programs.
