To be considered for any federal financial aid, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To be considered for any Furman-funded need-based grant aid in addition to any federal aid, you must complete the CSS Profile. 

CSS Profile

Domestic Students Only

Furman uses the College Board's CSS PROFILE to determine demonstrated financial need for the university's need-based grant program. Because Furman's institutional resources are limited, we must take the best measure of a family's ability to pay into account in awarding our own funds to students. International student applicants do not need to complete the CSS Profile. The code to use for Furman to receive your CSS PROFILE is 5222. Complete your CSS Profile.

All applicants interested in federal and state grants, loans, and work-study programs must complete the FAFSA. Eligible South Carolina residents will receive a South Carolina Tuition Grant of up to $3,200 per year based solely on information provided in this important document. To apply, complete and submit your FAFSA by June 30. The Title IV (federal financial aid programs) code to use for Furman to receive your FAFSA results in 003434. Complete the FAFSA.
