150th Commencement

Your Time Is Coming UP!


The Fisk Commencement committee is looking forward to welcoming our degree candidates from the mighty class of 2024 on Monday, May 6, 2024, as they celebrate their graduation from the Illustrious Fisk University.

At this time, and as long as safety permits, we hope to celebrate this celebration in person, on the Grove, and following tradition, complete with all the regalia, pomp, circumstance, and processions that we have come to anticipate as a Fisk Family.

Details are still being finalized, but we intend to publish updates here, on this page, and through our student affairs partners across the institution.

We would want to express our heartfelt appreciation to individuals on and off campus who have prioritized the health of our students, professors, staff, and alumni over the desire to congregate on and off campus during the pandemic, as we all wish we could. We are, however, energized to be moving forward with plans to celebrate in person as a community finally.

Fisk University will Hold the 150th Commencement Ceremony at Fisk University at 9:00 AM. Graduates will be given tickets for the event (We will update this section once the amount is finalized). 


150th Commencement Ceremony Speaker:



A total of four tickets in the reserved seating section will be given to each graduating senior. Any additional guests will be seated in the overflow sections on the lawn surrounding the ceremony.
