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.
- Share your ZeeMee with Us
In keeping with Furman’s holistic review process, we have partnered with ZeeMee, a free online platform that helps students showcase their true, authentic self through the admission process. If you have a story to tell, we want to see it. After creating a free ZeeMee account at www.zeemee.com, copy and paste your link into the Common Application – that’s it!
