Furman University

Founded in 1826, Furman University is a private university located in Greenville, South Carolina on a 750 acre campus internationally recognized for its beauty. At the heart of Furman is an outstanding, nationally-ranked academic program with exceptional faculty whose chief priority is teaching its students. Furman also offers distinguished visual and performing arts programs, NCAA Division I athletics, and a campus community that values collaboration and fosters empathy for a diversity of ideas and perspectives. Since 1957, the University has extended its rigorous and renowned education to include non-traditional students through Furman Undergraduate Evening Studies (UES). The program offers Upstate adults the opportunity to complete their degree at one of the nation’s leading liberal arts universities in convenient online and evening formats at a significant tuition discount. In addition to its undergraduate degrees, Furman UES also offers post-graduate certificates for professionals pursuing additional credentials that will accelerate their careers or prepare them for graduate school. Through campus organizations such as the national award-winning Heller Service Corps, Furman University cultivates thriving communities. By actively engaging its students, alumni, faculty, and staff with Upstate communities, Furman continuously strives to expand a sense of community far beyond the boundaries of its campus and advance the well-being of diverse communities, from Greenville to South Carolina, to the nation and around the world.
