Furman students are eligible to apply Federal and State Aid towards the cost of the program and must complete a Consortium Agreement
in order to have their aid applied toward the semester cost of DIS. Furman institutional aid and scholarships will not be applied to the program cost, but students will not lose their institutional aid for the following semesters.
How to Apply
Students will submit both a study away application to Furman University and a separate application for DIS. DIS will not accept a Furman student until the student has undergone the Furman application and been approved by Furman to participate in the program.
Once accepted by Furman, students will apply directly to DIS. Apply here. Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible, since programs may fill before the deadline.
Once accept by DIS, students must submit a Transfer Credit Authorization Form to the Registrar at Furman in order to be pre-approved to receive credit for classes taken abroad. Please contact the Registrar at Furman if you have questions related to the form.
All students will be billed by Furman for the cost of the program. Students are not responsible for paying published costs for Furman tuition, room, or board during their semester away and will only be responsible for the billed amount of their DIS semester. Note that once students are accepted by Furman, they will be responsible for paying a $500 administrative fee to Furman University. When students initiate an application with DIS, they must be ready to pay a deposit directly to DIS which will be applied to their semester fees. This deposit is the only program fee that will be paid directly to DIS. All other semester payments will be billed through Furman.
