Knox has three application options for first-year students.

The option you choose depends on how and when you want an admission decision.

Early Action I

If you've decided early in your senior year that Knox is among your top college choices, apply early and receive the benefit of learning your admission decision sooner. The Early Action option is nonbinding, meaning you may apply to other colleges and still have until May 1 to make your final college selection. Knox offers two rounds of early application consideration. Complete your application by November 1 (Early Action I), and we'll send an admission decision by November 30.

Early Action II

Apply by the December 1 deadline (Early Action II) and receive an admission decision by December 31. You still have until May 1 to reply to our offer.

Regular Decision

Regular Decision candidates should submit all portions of their applications for admission by February 1. Candidates receive an admission decision by March 31 and must reply to our offer by May 1.

You should start assembling your application materials well in advance of the deadline.
