A successful academic experience begins with a strong foundation. Make the most of your academic life at Knox:
Placement Exams Help You Find the Best Fit
Knox offers placement exams in mathematics, foreign languages, and chemistry. You must take these short quizzes/exams this summer-even if you believe you know where you should (or would like to) start out in a sequence—to ensure that you are placed in a class at the level appropriate for your skills. Learn more about placement exams.
Help us prepare for Summer Advising Days, July 22-23
All students will meet with their faculty academic advisors as soon as they arrive on campus in September, but we offer the option to meet with an advisor during the summer, too. On Friday, July 22, and Saturday, July 23, academic advisors will be available to meet with you at two locations: at the Knox campus in Galesburg and in downtown Chicago. Advisors can work with you to select your fall courses and address other academic questions you have. We will also welcome questions from you and your parents/guardians about life at Knox. To help us plan for these events, please complete this survey of your interest in Summer Advising Days. (Completing the survey does not commit you to attend a session. We will send a formal sign-up e-mail in June.)
Have a Question? Ask a Prof!
Can't make it to a summer advising day or live too far away? Don't worry. Another advising resource we will have for you is "Ask-a-Prof!" Ask-a-Prof is a real Knox professor, who will be available to answer questions about courses, academic programs and opportunities, or anything else you would like to know about your academic life at Knox. Ask-a-Prof will be available at email@example.com beginning on June 15.
Get your computer ready for our campus network
If you're thinking about adding a new laptop or other device to your graduation wish list, make sure it meets all the hardware and wireless requirements to connect to the Knox Network.
Submit your final transcripts and test scores
Be sure to request that a final high school transcript, any relevant test scores (AP, IB, GCE), and any college records be sent to Knox. We need this information not only to maintain your eligibility for financial aid and scholarships, but also to assist your faculty advisor as you register for classes.
If your first language is not English
International students are invited to participate in an Intensive English Language Program from August 20 to September 3, prior to the International Pre-Orientation Program (IPOP). If your first language is not English, the program will be an excellent opportunity to improve your English language skills.
