Resources Help You Stay Physically and Emotionally Fit

In the coming months, you will face many exciting opportunities and challenges. 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.

Here are seven things to do (and learn more about) in June:


Topping The To-Do List … Health Forms.
To help us meet your healthcare needs, visit your personalized student portal
to complete immunization and medical history forms. These forms must be completed before you can register.


Are you an Athlete?
If you plan to participate in varsity athletics at Knox, we will need a few additional forms. Download athlete physical, sickle cell trait testing, and insurance information forms and learn more about athletic fees and physical exams that will be available on campus this fall.


Healthcare Right Around the Corner (Or Across the Quad).
Medical care is provided on campus by Health Services. There is no cost per visit and no limit to the number of visits you can make to the office, which provides basic healthcare for illness and injuries. Learn more about Health Services at Knox.


Insurance Plan Covers Accidents On and Off Campus.
It’s good to know that you’re automatically enrolled in an accident insurance plan that provides specified medical benefits if you’re accidentally injured either on or off campus. Learn more about the accident insurance plan.


The Comfort of Comprehensive Coverage.
All Knox students are strongly advised to have comprehensive health insurance. While basic health care is available through campus Health Services, additional medical expenses are your financial responsibility. Knox does not offer comprehensive health insurance plans for students, but we have identified some available options. Learn about voluntary insurance options.


Meeting Your Mental Health Needs.
Wellness is more than just your physical health. Confidential counseling, outreach, and consultations are available free of charge to all Knox students, where you have the opportunity to talk with an objective professional about your feelings and concerns. Learn more about Counseling Services.


Submit Your Final Transcripts and Test Scores.
Don’t forget to submit your final secondary school transcript and any additional transcripts for college coursework you have completed. Now is also the time to submit your AP and IB scores for college credit and your ACT and SAT scores if you did not submit them during your application process.

If you haven’t already, be sure to join the Class of 2018 Facebook Group and remember to visit often for the information you need as you prepare for your arrival on campus in September.
