For Students Affected by Recent Natural Disasters

The Knox community sends our best thoughts and wishes to everyone affected by recent hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, and floods. If your family has been affected by any of these natural disasters, we understand that you may be coping with more important priorities in your life right now. When you’re able to re-focus on your college search, we’ll be ready to work with you. If you need additional time to complete your application, we’re happy to extend the application deadline. If the $50 application fee is now a financial hardship, we’ll waive it. If your high school needs more time to provide transcripts or recommendations, we’ll still give your application full consideration.

Most importantly, we hope that you and your family are well, and that you’ll be able to recover fully and quickly from any hardship you have endured.

If you have any questions—or to update us on your circumstances—please contact the Office of Admission or reach out directly to your admission counselor.
