Complete the Requirement.
4. Apply to a Program  If the program is currently accepting applications, you will see a button labeled ‘Apply Now’ on the left-hand side. Click on the  ‘Apply Now’ button to begin your application. You may apply up to 3 programs per term. You can start an application before attending your required Study Away Session.

Under the Dates/Deadlines, you will find the terms in which this program is available, the application deadline, the decision date (the date when the faculty will begin notifying students of their decisions), and the start and end dates for travel.

If this is your first time applying for study away, you will be asked if you are a Furman user: answer ‘Yes’. Then you will be prompted to login with your Furman network name and password. Next, you will be asked if you want to create a profile using your Furman information: answer ‘Yes’.  This will create your account.

You are responsible for completing all requirements before the program's application deadline.
5. Interview Once the program application deadline passes, most programs will hold in-person interviews. It is essential to properly prepare for these interviews and arrive early for the process.
6. Decisions & Next Steps Students will receive a decision regarding their applications in accordance to the program's deadlines. Students must complete the post-acceptance requirements within 2 weeks of acceptance to maintain program acceptance. Please review Before You Go or contact Study Away for additional questions.
