For Faculty-led and Affiliate semester programs, the cost is equal to Furman semester tuition, room and board on campus plus a study away fee (tuition, lodging, most meals, and course-related travel are included). Financial Aid applies as it would on campus.
MayX tuition is covered in the comprehensive semester fees, so students are charged the actual program costs which can range from $2,500 to about $6,000.
Costs for Exchange programs vary. For some programs you may pay tuition, room, and board to Furman, for others room and board may be paid directly to the exchange university.
Students participating on Non-Furman programs must request a Leave of Absence the semester before the commencement of their Non-Furman study away program. When a student takes a leave of absence from Furman, they apply and pay the cost directly to the Non-Furman program.
Scholarships are available for Furman Faculty-led, Affiliate, Exchange, and MayX/Summer participants. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, academic performance, and student’s rationale for study away. Students intending to apply for a scholarship should be sure that they have a FAFSA report on file with the Financial Aid office for the previous year. Students are eligible for one scholarship per year and any scholarships awarded in subsequent years will be reduced.
