Admission tips

Our university attracts talented students from around the world who want to work hard and be challenged. To select the best applicants from this pool, our admission committee goes beyond test scores and other numbers to get to know the real you. View our tips for admission.

Interview with us

We encourage you to participate in a Furman Admission Network (FAN) interview, an informal interview with a Furman alumnus or parent.  You will be paired with someone in your area and ideally, interview in person. If that doesn't work, you may interview by phone or Skype.

Though a FAN interview is an optional part of the application process, we strongly urge you to participate. These informal interviews allow you to speak with someone who knows Furman personally and to see if Furman is the right fit for you. It also allows us to get to know you in ways that your application may not have revealed. Schedule your interview.

Check your application status

When we receive your Common Application, we will contact you to establish a login that will allow you to check your status. You'll need an email address and password to access our secure network. Check your application status.
