International students must be able to demonstrate their family's ability to afford a Knox education. However, Knox does offer a limited scholarship program for international students who demonstrate financial need and strong academic abilities. The maximum award is approximately one-half of the comprehensive fee. To be considered for these awards, you must submit a Financial Aid Application for International Students (PDF) and a Certification of Finances Form (PDF) with your application for admission. The ability to afford a Knox education may be a factor in determining the admission of international students who are academically qualified but do not meet financial qualifications.
When making plans to attend Knox, your family should expect the comprehensive fee to increase by five to seven percent each year and prepare as well for potential fluctuations in currency exchange rates. For more information, see Financial Information for International Students (PDF).
Most foreign nationals wishing to enter the United States are required to have a visa. Students who attend Knox College will require the F-1 Student Visa. To apply for an F-1 Visa, an I-20 is required. Students are sent I-20s with their offer of admission along with their SEVIS number.
