Applying as a First-Year Student

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.)

Application

Complete your application online—use the  Common Application, the  Coalition Application, or the Knox College Application. There is no application fee.

Required Documents

Secondary School Report* and Transcript*
On your application, request that your school counselor complete the School Report and provide your transcript.

Teacher Evaluation*
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.
