Congratulations on your admission to 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. We've compiled all the resources you'll need for your first semester at Furman.
New student checklist
From learning how to submit your enrollment deposit to reviewing your financial aid status, we have created a new student checklist that will help you identify what you need to complete before classes begin. View our international student checklist.
Wire a payment
Due to the higher cost of health care in the United States, international students and their accompanying dependents must carry health insurance that meets or exceeds U.S. F-1 or J-1 visa regulations. Enrolling in a good health insurance plan is for your protection and it is important that you carry your insurance card at all times and understand the details of your policy. If you are an F-1 visa
student, you will be automatically enrolled in the VISIT international
health insurance program.
Be sure to complete our three-step process to ensure we have your latest medical and immunization records. Check out our quick guide to required immunizations. Our international student checklist provides the forms you need to submit your records. Visit our new student checklist.
Visas and immigration
The U.S. has specific rules and regulations you must follow to obtain your visa. Contact the U.S. Embassy or Consulate to apply for an F-1 or J-1 visa.

To register for courses, you will complete a course preference form. You will receive instructions via email on completing this process.
