Furman University is a community of learning enriched by the wide variety of experiences and perspectives of its students. To support and enhance this environment, we have developed a set of well-defined policies, procedures and regulations that outline our expectations for all students, including undergraduate day students, undergraduate evening students and graduate students. We believe these guidelines promote the greater good, and ensure that every student has the ability to pursue their academic goals. As you become a member of our community, we encourage you to review our standards, and gain a greater understanding of what it means to study at Furman.
