This is your chance to help us get to know you—to help us understand what's important to you, how you've prepared for college, and what you hope to achieve during college.

We seeks students who are bright, intellectually curious, and active participants in and out of the classroom. At Knox, you'll never be just a number—a class rank, a GPA, or a test score. In fact, we'll take the time to read and consider everything submitted in your application, and we look forward to learning all about you!

After submitting your application on the Common Application website, it will be delivered electronically to our office. Once we receive it, which usually happens within 24 hours, we'll send you an e-mail to confirm that we’ve received it. You’ll also receive login information to check the status of your application online, monitor the receipt of documents by our office, and know when you application is ready to be reviewed.

Questions? Contact your admission counselor—or call the Office of Admission—and let us know how we can help.
