Attend Summer Orientation

To help you become acclimated to our campus, we have designed a parent and family orientation program during Summer Orientation. You'll attend one of five Summer Orientation sessions in June, which focus primarily on the academic portion of your student’s experience, but also give you as a parent or family member the opportunity to gather a bevy of critical information. Learn how to register with your student for this event.

Financial information

We recognize the significant investment your family makes to attain a Furman education. We also know that the process of applying for and assessing financial aid can be a daunting task. That’s why we’re going out of our way to ensure you and your student are prepared financially. Get the financial details you need.
