Exchange Students

Fisk University Exchange Program

An exchange program between Fisk University and Case Western Reserve University enables up to four Case Western Reserve students to spend a semester as visiting students at Fisk University each year. Up to four Fisk students may spend a semester at Case Western Reserve each year.

Fisk University was founded in 1866 as the first integrated, coeducational school in the United States, and, at its founding, focused on providing a quality liberal arts education to the children of former slaves. Fisk has a distinguished history as a liberal arts institution. It was the first historically black college to have chapters of the Phi Beta Kappa and Mortar Board national honorary societies.

Case Western Reserve students who participate in the Case Western Reserve/Fisk Exchange pay tuition to Case Western Reserve, pay the Fisk room and board fees, and maintain their student status during the period of the exchange. Information about the exchange program is available from Dean Claudia Anderson in the Office of Undergraduate Studies.

CWRU students interested in applying for the exchange program must submit the CWRU Exchange Student Application.

Fisk students interested in applying for the exchange program must submit the Fisk University Exchange Student Application.

Through participation in the program, graduates gain the necessary foreign language ability, cross-cultural skills, and professional experience to excel in the multinational/multicultural business environment of the 21st century. Students are nominated by their home institution and receive credit at home for academic work completed abroad. They study overseas in a member institution for one or two semesters, typically in their junior year. For more information, visit iie.org/Programs/Global-E3.
