The Fisher College Student Relief Fund launched last week to help our neediest students.  So far, the college has used money from the Relief Fund to purchase additional laptops to loan to students who told their instructors that they did not have the tools they needed to work online. Many thanks to those who have already contributed and to faculty members who have advocated for their students.

If you wish to contribute to the fund, you can donate below:

Based on federal and state guidelines, Fisher College staff will continue to work remotely until May 4, 2020 at the earliest. The cabinet will continue to review the situation and discuss whether an additional extension is in order. Day undergraduate and gradute students will finish their semesters online. 

As of March 19, 2020, both the Undergraduate Commencement (May 16, 2020) and Graduate Commencement (June 26, 2020) are postponed and, if public health permits, will take place on Sunday, August 23, 2020, in a combined ceremony. Candidates for graduation will receive additional information in the near future.

While the campus will be closed for public events until further notice, the College is still hosting its Virtual Accepted Students Day on Sunday, April 5 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Students will have the chance to have virtual conversations with department heads and representatives of student life.
