A successful academic experience begins with a strong foundation. The following resources will help you make the most of your academic life at Knox:

Your Academic Journey
We're excited to welcome you to the Knox community of learners, faculty, staff, and students who -- like you -- enjoy the opportunities for inquiry and creativity that a Knox education offers. To help you start, here are a few ways to think about the academic journey upon which you're about to embark.

Placement Exams
Accurate course placement is vital to your academic success at Knox. Research shows that students who begin their college study at the appropriate level enjoy greater progress and achievement. Learn more about placement exams in mathematics, foreign languages, and chemistry.

Education Centers
To give you the tools and support you need to succeed in your academic career, the College has established a group of educational centers to provide information, resources, and faculty guidance to help you access and navigate the range of opportunities at the College -- from research to global studies and learning, to community service, careers, and intercultural life.

Computing on Campus
There are some simple steps you can take before you arrive at Knox to prepare your computer for our network.

Get Your Textbooks
When you arrive on campus, you will meet with your advisor to determine your final course schedule based on your course preferences. When it's finalized, the Knox Bookstore has textbooks to rent or buy (and offers a best price promise).

Academic Calendar
We designed our 3-3 academic calendar to provide you with the maximum amount of depth and flexibility in your academic pursuits. In each of our three 10-week terms, you take only three courses (hence the 3-3).
