Fisk University Eligibility
This exchange is an opportunity open to sophomore and junior students with appropriate academic preparation, motivation, and interest in the relevant area. Students must have completed at least one course with significant African American content.
Admission to this program is based on the quality of application. Candidates must present a coherent academic rationale for participation in the Fisk Exchange Program and a record of academic performance that demonstrates ability to meet the challenges of off-campus study. Normally, this means a GPA of at least 2.8, but the selection committee considers closely the candidate's rationale for participation and academic record as a whole. Candidates for the Exchange must also present evidence of maturity, responsibility and cultural sensitivity.
Students currently on disciplinary, social, or academic probation are not eligible to apply for, or participate in, off-campus study programs. In addition, students with outstanding disciplinary fines, service hours and/or education program requirements are not eligible to participate in the program.
