Program directors welcome the application of all Knox students, regardless of academic interest or time at Knox. First-year students are more than welcome to apply. While there are no specific prerequisite courses to participate in the Green Oaks Term, applicants should have enough background in arts, natural sciences, or social sciences to enroll in 300-level courses and should have a general interest in all areas of the program.

Students who participate in Green Oaks Term must also be self-motivated and disciplined. The term requires great amounts of energy, versatility, communication, and the ability to cooperate and co-exist with other students. Life at Green Oaks is substantially different than ordinary American and campus life, so applicants should consider seriously whether they are temperamentally suited to a term at Green Oaks before applying.
