Most students who will receive financial aid have been awarded for the upcoming academic year. If you applied for financial aid, you should have received an award notification and taken action on the aid you will accept. If you don’t see financial aid from your award letter listed on your bill, the cause is likely…
- You have financial aid awards that you still need to accept. You can rectify this by visiting “accept or reject my financial aid awards” through the Financial Information menu on your MyFurman portal.
- We need additional paperwork to complete your financial aid file. To see if you are missing any paperwork, check “Financial Aid Documents” through the Financial Information menu on your MyFurman portal.
- Your FAFSA is being verified. This process can take up to a week after all documents have been received.
- Furman has not yet received your application for need-based financial aid. You still have time to complete the FAFSA and the CSS profile to begin the process.
- Part or all of your award is Federal Work Study requiring you to earn the funds through an on-campus job. Federal Work Study funds are not applied to your account. As you work, the money you earn is paid via our regular payroll.
Please refer to enroll.furman.edu for additional information about any student financial matter. Still have questions? Contact us through email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 864-294-2030. We’re always glad to help!
Finally, remember from this point forward all emails will be sent to your Furman.edu email address ONLY, so please begin checking it regularly. Don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions!
As you have probably realized, Furman relies heavily on technology to communicate with our students. We also depend on web-based tools for a wide variety of administrative details, like housing assignments and course selection. Accordingly, it is imperative that you keep up-to-date with how to navigate the computing world at Furman. By this point, you should have received your Furman credentials in the mail – your Net ID (or username), email address, student ID, and a temporary password. If you HAVE NOT received your network credentials, please let us know as soon as possible. Problems or questions about network access should be directed to the IT Service Center via email, email@example.com, or by calling 864-294-3277.
Please take a few minutes to visit the Information Technology Services, or ITS, website and begin to familiarize yourself with the Furman network. Included on the website are instructions to prepare your devices for the Furman network, as well as a list of frequently asked technology questions for new students.
Beginning in June, we will start to regularly send e-mails to your new “furman.edu” e-mail address. You should plan to use this address as your primary e-mail account because faculty, staff, and your fellow students will expect to communicate with you primarily via this medium. We will discontinue sending messages to the e-mail address you supplied to us during the admission process at the end of June.
If you have not already done so, it is time to get your medical and immunization history to us! Log into the Furman Patient Portal using your Furman username (net ID) and password. Please follow the detailed instructions for required immunizations, health history form, TB screening form and insurance information.
The due date to complete this information is Thursday, June 15. If you need assistance, please visit the Student Health Services website or contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Housing assignments, roommate information and course schedules will not be made available to students until this information has been submitted.
Your Furman network credentials – including username, email, student ID, and temporary password have been mailed to you. You should receive them within the next week, which means you can begin completing many of the items on the new student checklist.
Your academic success at Furman begins with the assignment of an academic advisor who will get to know your interests and educational goals and will work with you to offer advice regarding course selection and your intended degree.
