Knox seeks students who are active, engaged learners. We value students who demonstrate their appreciation for a variety of educational experiences, both in and out of the classroom. Our admission counselors consider you as an individual when making our admission decisions.
In order of importance, we'll consider the following information in evaluating your admission application:
If English is not your first language, you are required to submit scores from the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language). The minimum acceptable score is 80 on the Internet-based exam, 213 on the computer-based exam, or 550 on the paper exam. If you haven't taken the TOEFL test, we'll also accept APIEL, IELTS, or SAT II ELPT exam scores to assess your proficiency in English.
Interviews While Interviews are not required for international students, they are strongly recommended. We encourage you to have your interview during a visit to campus but we are also able to conduct interviews as part of our travels, by phone, or via Skype. Interviews are a wonderful way for us to get to know you and an even better way for you to discover the Human-Powered Knox Experience.
