Historically Black Fisk University in Nashville has announced a new program in which students will graduate in four years and be automatically admitted to a master’s degree program at the university.
Students in the program are required to follow the university’s “Roadmap to Success” that breaks out each year’s requirements to graduate in four years. The roadmap details step-by-step requirements necessary to finish in four years. The program will include consistent support from the university and numerous check-ins with academic advisors to ensure students can stay on track.
On top of the 4-year graduation pledge, Fisk is offering students who participate in this program – and meet the grade point average requirement – automatic admission into one of four master’s degree programs; social justice, psychology, healthcare management, and executive leadership. What makes this new program particularly attractive is that for students who graduate in four years and are admitted to a master’s degree program, their tuition for graduate school will be half price.
“It is incumbent upon universities to deliver unprecedented outcomes and to prepare students in the most dynamic and effective way,” said Fisk University President Vann Newkirk, Sr. “The Fisk Four-Ever program allows students to stay on track with their matriculation and is a perfect opportunity for students who are looking for a competitive edge at an affordable rate.”
