Articulation Agreement: MDC, Fisk Sign Admissions Pact
Fisk University, a premier liberal arts institution in Nashville, Tenn., signed a collaborative admissions agreement with Miami Dade College that will allow MDC students to enter Fisk as juniors once they’ve earned their Associate in Arts.
The agreement also makes credits fully transferable between the institutions, so students at either school can take courses administered and taught by the other. Fisk will consider students who hold an associate degree with a liberal arts emphasis.
Founded three years after the end of the Civil War and two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, Fisk, a historically black institution, counted former slaves ranging in age from 7 to 70 in its first class.
More than 140 years later, its roster of alumni includes the prolific African-American scholars W.E.B. DuBois, James Weldon Johnson, John Hope Franklin and Nikki Giovanni. Fisk offers 18 undergraduate and graduate programs, seven pre-professional programs and six minors.
Fisk joins more than 60 universities nationwide and internationally that have established agreements with MDC to provide a seamless path for transferring students. This includes agreements with Smith College, the University of Wisconsin, Mount Holyoke College, and many public and private colleges and universities in Florida.
