1. There's a place for you here. We're a small, welcoming, and diverse community. It will take literally no time at all for you to meet people who share your interests, make new friends, and feel at home in Galesburg.
2. You won't miss out on any of the uniquely Knox experiences available to our students. Want to study abroad? Conduct independent research or creative work? Participate in one of our unique 10-week immersive terms? There's time. We can make it work.
3. You’ll be eligible for financial aid and scholarships. In fact, we offer scholarships specifically for transfer students, ranging from $10,000 to $20,000 per year. You may also qualify for writing, visual arts, or performance scholarships. (If you want to be considered for one of these, you will need to submit a portfolio of your work or schedule an audition when you apply.)
A thorough transcript review following your admission
Our registrar will individually review your academic record to make sure you get the appropriate credit for your previous work. At Knox, courses are typically 1 credit hour; you'll need 36 credit hours to graduate. Generally, credits transfer at .3 credits per semester hour and .2 credits per quarter hour. The maximum number of transfer credit hours we'll accept from a community college is 18; from other institutions, up to 22.5 credit hours. See our transfer credit policy for more details.
One-on-one help planning the rest of your college experience
You'll meet with an advisor to go over your personal educational plan. They'll help you understand which courses you need to complete your chosen major, as well as how to fit in study abroad, internships, and any other courses you want to take.
Visit campus. You can attend a class, meet with current students, and talk to faculty members in your chosen area of study.
Talk with our transfer counselor, Delorean Menifee.
