Welcome to the Office of Recruitment and Admission

The Office of Recruitment and Admission identifies and recruits talented students to comprise the entering class annually. We are looking for students of demonstrated academic acumen that possess strong records of leadership and service. 

The admission evaluation looks at the following criteria:

  • Academic Performance (High School and/or College career)
  • Standardized test scores
  • Service and Leadership

Proper academic preparation for those seeking undergraduate admission, as determined by the Office of Recruitment and Admission, is as follows:

  • 4 years of English
  • 3 years of Math (to include Algebra 2 with Trigonometry)
  • 3 years of science
  • 1 year of foreign language
  • 1 year of history
Students who submit applications to Fisk University without fulfilling the above stated proper academic preparation requirements will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. In some cases, the evaluation results in an admission decision even if  your application was below the minimum standard but the University saw potential and has offered admission.
