Submit standardized test scores
Our personal approach to the admission process allows us to gain insight about who you are, both academically and personally. Furman's Admission Committee is interested in getting to know the whole student — one who seeks academic challenge, leadership, service, commitment to the community and civic engagement. We view the admission process as an opportunity for you to showcase yourself and your abilities.
The Admission Committee believes that your potential for success cannot be determined solely by standardized test scores. Therefore, submitting your SAT or ACT scores is optional.
Our goal is to shape Furman's community with students of all different talents, backgrounds, personalities, interests, and passions. We invite you to let us get to know all about you.
If you do decide to submit your test scores and submit multiple test results, the Admission Committee will select the scores that offer you the greatest advantage in the admission review process. Furman's school code for the SAT and TOEFL is 5222, and the code for ACT is 3858. If you do not wish for us to consider your scores, please indicate so on the Supplement to the Common Application.
Schedule a FAN interview
Furman Admission Network interviews give you the opportunity to talk about all those things that make you unique — your talents, experiences and aspirations. What better way to find out if Furman is right for you? These informal interviews with Furman alumni or parents allow you to speak with someone who knows Furman personally. Though optional, we encourage all applicants to participate in an interview. Be sure to sign up for an interview before the deadline.
If you have questions about applying to Furman, contact Allyson Brown,
Admission Counselor & Transfer Coordinator, at 864.294.2034 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
