We're excited to welcome you to the Knox community! As you begin this new stage in your life, this site will help make your journey from home to campus a smooth one.

Your Student Portal

This is where you will find your Knox "to do" list. Visit your personalized student portal to see what items you've completed and what tasks still need to be done before you arrive at Knox.

Welcome to Knox

It's never too early to make arrangements for travel and accommodations for you and your family. Take a look at our recommended packing list and make friends at one of our summer picnics that Knox hosts across the country.

Living at Knox

We don't want you to miss out on a single moment because of illness or injury. That's why we've established resources to help you stay physically and emotionally fit.

Learning at Knox
It's time to choose your course preferences, take placement exams, and learn more about your academic journey.
