Our physical offices and campus are closed for now, but the College continues to function—albeit from remote locations. All Office of Admission functions will continue as usual (other than in-person visits!), and we’re available to assist you during our regular hours, 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (Central Time), Monday - Friday. You'll find our contact information here.

We’ll be as flexible as possible with deadlines, submission of documents for admission and financial aid, and making your final college decision. For now, we have extended the deposit deadline to June 1. When you’re ready to say yes to Knox—submit your $300 enrollment deposit at, and we'll send a pair of Knox socks and a travel mug!

We know that interacting with the people of Knox--with current students, professors, coaches, and members of the staff--can be very important as you make your final college decisions. So, we invite you to engage with us—virtually!

Take a virtual tour, schedule a virtual meeting with your admission counselor, talk directly with current students online. We’ll be adding more and more ways to connect with us over the days ahead. See all the options at
