ACT or SAT Scores
The submission of ACT or SAT scores is optional for most applicants. You can decide for yourself if your scores adequately reflect your abilities and potential for success in college. If you elect to provide your scores, they will be considered and can sometimes help us in assessing your abilities more fully. Scores can be submitted either directly from the testing agency or on your official secondary school transcript.
Home schooled students and students attending secondary schools that do not provide grades must submit ACT or SAT scores. Knox’s College Board Code for submission of SAT scores is 1372. For ACT, our College Code is 1052. If you will be unable to provide ACT or SAT scores because of COVID-related disruptions, please contact your admission counselor to discuss your homeschooling experience and possible alternatives to submitting scores.
AP or IB Scores ( more information)
Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) are not required for admission but may be submitted for advanced course standing and/or credit upon enrollment at Knox.
If you are an international student and English is not your first language, you are required to submit scores from the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), IELTS (International English Language Testing System), Duolingo English Test (DET), or Global Test of English Communication (GTEC). The minimum acceptable score is 80 on the Internet-based exam on TOEFL, 6.5 on IELTS, 105 on DET, or 1200 on GTEC. If your secondary education has been completed in English and you have not taken a proficiency test, please contact the Office of Admission.
