Office of Admission
2 East South Street
Galesburg, IL 61401-4999
Our physical campus is closed, but the College is open. We're here from 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (Central Time), Monday - Friday. You'll find our contact information here.
You can also engage with us virtually! Take a virtual tour, schedule a virtual meeting with your admission counselor, talk directly with current students online.
This is your chance to help us get to know you—to help us understand what's important to you, how you've prepared for college, and what you hope to achieve during college.
We seek students who are bright, intellectually curious, and active participants in and out of the classroom. At Knox, you'll never be just a number—a class rank, a GPA, or a test score. In fact, we'll take the time to read and consider everything submitted in your application, and we look forward to learning all about you!
What type of applicant are you?
Apply using the Common Application, the Coalition Application, or the Knox College Application. Within 48 hours after submitting your application, we'll send you an email with login information to check the status of your application online, monitor the receipt of documents by our office, and know when your application is ready to be reviewed.
