Prospective Applicants Furman University 

To be considered for any federal financial aid, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To be considered for any Furman-funded need-based grant aid in addition to any federal aid, you must complete the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE. (Note: International student applicants need not complete the FAFSA or the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE.)

CSS Profile

Furman uses the College Board's CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE to determine demonstrated financial need for the university's need-based grant program (Furman Grant). Because Furman's institutional resources are limited, we must take the best measure of a family's ability to pay into account in awarding our own funds to students. The code to use for Furman to receive your CSS PROFILE is 5222. Complete your CSS Profile.


Income tax documents that are indicated as required when completing the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE should be sent to us via email to, via fax 864-294-3127, or by regular USPS mail to: Furman University, Enrollment Services, 3300 Poinsett Highway, Greenville, SC 29613. Submit all schedules associated with your tax returns as well.

IMPORTANT: Redact or strike through any SSN/EIN and bank account information that may be on your tax documents.


All applicants interested in federal and state grants, loans, and work study must complete the FAFSA. If you are a South Carolina resident, you may be eligible for a South Carolina Tuition Grant of up to $3,200 per year. To apply, complete and submit your FAFSA by June 30th of each year. The Title IV code to use for Furman to receive your FAFSA results in 003434. Complete your FAFSA.
