All institution-wide policies and procedures guiding the academic programs offered through the Fisk University are available in one of two places: (1) the official student handbook (2) in the University Bulletin.
The University Bulletin provides important information on student government, academic and student support services, technology support services, available health services, financial aid, emergency procedures, institution-wide policies and procedures of particular relevance for students, rights and responsibilities of students, the Student Code of Conduct, the judicial system governing student actions, and a summary of a variety of organizations and opportunities for students. Policies and procedures governing academic, faculty and student affairs are available at the website provided above and are updated routinely.
Students are strongly encouraged to review the information provided in the University Bulletin, upon acceptance into Fisk University. In addition, students are encouraged to review the following policies as they directly relate to successful progression and completion of the degree programs offered at Fisk University.
In 1930, Fisk became the first African-American institution to gain accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. It was also the first such institution to be placed on the approved lists of the Association of American Universities (1933) and the American Association of University Women (1948). In 1952, Fisk received a charter for the first Phi Beta Kappa chapter on a predominantly black campus and also became the first private, black college accredited for its music programs by the National Association of Schools of Music. Its Chemistry Department is on the approved list of the American Chemical Society. Fisk is a member of the Council of Graduate Schools in the United States and a sponsoring institution of the Oak Ridge Associated Universities, Inc. It is approved for teacher licensure preparation by the State of Tennessee Department of Education.
All of the University Bulletins are collectively assembled by various Offices around the Fisk University Campus. The Process of developing these Important documents is overseen by the University Provost.

When people say "Fisk chooses you", I did not want to believe them, but it TRUE!
We are Fisk.
Once I stepped foot on this campus, it was something about it that draws you in and makes you feel that you are destined for greatness. Fisk not only gets you ready for the professional world but, socially as well. Being around my fellow Fiskites from around the globe is an unreal experience.
