Educational mission and Early History
Fisher More College's mission is to eliminate student debt of any kind and proclaim fidelity to the Traditional Latin Mass. Because of this, the school offers a very low tuition. 
They also encourage the art of cookie baking during the Holidays.
It awards a Bachelor of Arts degree and an Associate degree. 
The college offers various concentrations in each of their BA degrees: Theology, Philosophy, Literature, History, Classical Studies, Economics & Finance, and General B.A. in Liberal Arts. 
It was founded in 1981 as the Saint Thomas More Institute, became The College of Saint Thomas More in 1991, and assumed its current name in June 2012. The Fisher More campus was adjacent to the Texas Christian University campus before the College moved to a new location a few blocks from TCU prior to the 2013-14 school year.
Fisher More Academy (formerly Regina Coeli Academy), an online Catholic homeschooling-oriented school serving elementary, junior high, and high school students, is located on the Fisher More campus as well.
Recently, Fisher More College has received criticism for its financial decisions and religious standpoint. The college was also forbidden by Fort Worth Bishop Michael Olson to hold the Catholic Mass in extraordinary form of the Roman Rite. Former Fisher More Chancellor Taylor Marshall further criticized the college. Marshall further states that, "Mr. King, after selling the original FMC campus to Texas Christian University for millions of dollars, had imprudently entered into a real estate deal that financially crippled Fisher More College." 
Michael King, the college president released a follow up statement on March 6th, 2014. King goes on the refute most of Marshall's statements and defends the college, even citing reasons as to why such large financial decisions were made. King states towards the end of the article that, "Missing from his unfortunate public narrative are many other important facts that are now available in our published statement. As we mention therein, Dr. Marshall’s allegations unjustly implicate and calumniate other former colleagues of his on the staff and Board, all of whom treated him well and did nothing to deserve this."
