An international student is a person who is a citizen of a country other than the United States who has a visa for educational purposes with an intent to return to his or her homeland upon completion of his or her educational program.
International students must carry a minimum of 12 semester hours. Because no government financial assistance is available to international students, it is essential that students from outside the United States have sufficient funds to cover their expenses while studying at Fisk.

Admission To Fisk
Admission to Fisk is selective. Today's entering students are typically ranked in the top fifth of their high school classes. Almost all rank in the top half. Fisk's enrollment remains deliberately small to cultivate a family feeling on its campus.
International students should follow regular admission procedures for new freshmen or transfer students. In addition, international freshmen applicants should submit both secondary school academic records, including all transcripts, and leaving/national examination certificates. Please click here
