It is the responsibility of individual students to have the courses they intend to take approved by each department chair. A Credit Approval Form will be included in the acceptance packet for the Fisk Program.
Some departments may limit the number of courses taken off-campus that may count toward a major, or they may have other regulations about how such courses transfer. It is essential that students confer with their advisors and department chairpersons well in advance of leaving for Nashville in order to plan their academic programs and avoid problems.
In order to get full academic credit for a semester's work at Fisk University, SLU students must take at least sixteen semester hours. With prior approval by the appropriate SLU department chair, students may take any course offered at Fisk University as long as the student is qualified and there is space available.
