We know that life is different right now and understand that you may be facing challenges that are keeping you from completing your application. So we are extending our January 15 application deadline. Apply now (with no fee), and you will receive the same scholarship and financial aid opportunities as all students who have applied to Knox.
If you are a high school senior or have less than a semester of full-time college coursework, you should apply as a first-year student. If you are not a citizen or permanent resident of the United States, you should apply as an International Applicant. (Undocumented immigrants residing in the U.S. should apply as First-Year Applicants.)
Secondary School Report* and Transcript*
On your application, request that your school counselor complete the School Report and provide your transcript.
On your application, identify a teacher from an academic subject area (English, math, social studies, science, or language) to submit a recommendation.
Mid Year Report* of Your Fall Grades
Your school counselor should submit a Mid Year Report with an updated transcript that includes your fall grades when they become available.
We strongly recommend an interview with an admission counselor. Interviews are available on-campus, in locations across the country, by phone, or via the internet. Contact the Office of Admission to schedule an interview—or see if we're offering interviews in your area.
*A note on school reports, recommendations, and transcripts: After identifying your counselor and teacher on your application, they will be invited to complete their forms online. If they prefer to mail your School Report, Mid Year Report, transcript, and/or recommendations, they can be mailed directly to the Knox College Office of Admission.
