New Registrar, Dr. Nichole Mancone Fisher, Joins TCU

Nichole Mancone Fisher will join TCU November 1, 2021, as the next University Registrar, following the retirement of Mary Kincannon.

Fisher comes to TCU after serving as registrar at the University of Texas in Arlington. She has held registrar posts for the Tarrant County College District, University of North Texas at Dallas, Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, and assistant registrar at Duke University.

The University Registrar plays a central role in maintaining the accuracy and integrity of TCU’s academic operations and serves as custodian of all student academic records. The Registrar ensures that students meet graduation requirements, prepares transcripts and diplomas, and is ultimately responsible for protecting the privacy of student educational records. The Registrar oversees the creation and maintenance of course schedules and the approved academic curriculum, as well as coordinating student registration and the reporting of grades.

Fisher began her higher education career in student affairs at the Boston Conservatory and Bentley University. She has served as a principal designated school official for international student INS certification and chief VA certifying official. She has held adjunct positions in academic advising and has significant experience with PeopleSoft, Ad Astra, ImageNow and Transferology.

“Nichole’s impressive educational accomplishments, depth of experience and knowledge of the industry will be a significant addition to TCU’s enrollment management team. I believe her vision of how the Office of the Registrar supports TCU’s academic mission will be embraced by all who interact with Nichole and her team,” said Mike Scott, Associate Provost of Enrollment Management.

“My goal is to provide seamless service to students, faculty and staff, so instead of being concerned with how registration operates, they simply have the information they need when they need it,” Fisher said. “Having worked at a large private institution with multiple colleges under one central governing unit, I know that effective operations are vital to student success.”

Fisher earned a BA in history from Fairfield University, MA in higher education administration from The Ohio State University, and Doctorate of Education from the University of North Texas. She holds a graduate certificate in Strategic Enrollment Management, and a Serving Our Veterans Behavioral Health Certificate from the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, U.S. Department of Defense.
