Transfer Scholarships

Students who transfer to Knox may be eligible for renewable scholarships up to $34,000 per year. Scholarships are available to students transferring from two- and four-year colleges and universities and are awarded based on the level of academic achievement in liberal arts courses. We look closely at your academic achievements, but we know that’s not the whole story. So, we also want to hear about your talents, interests, and personal qualities. We’re looking for that elusive “X-Factor”—or perhaps we should say, the “KnoX-Factor”—that, combined with your academic accomplishments, helps us see the full, multidimensional you. You’ll be considered for scholarships based on the information you provide in your application for admission and through an admission interview. If you’re an artist, you can also provide portfolio submissions or complete auditions that will be evaluated by Knox faculty.

Phi Theta Kappa Scholarships

Members of Phi Theta Kappa, the national honorary society for community college students, are eligible for renewable scholarships up to $25,000 per year.

Scholarship Application Requirements

Apply for admission by April 1 for fall entrance, November 1 for winter entrance, or January 15 for spring entrance.


Candidates are notified of their scholarship awards at the time of admission.

General Scholarship Guidelines

Scholarships are renewable annually as long as recipients remain in good academic standing. Scholarships must be applied toward the cost of tuition and the combination of Knox scholarships and grants and federal and state grants cannot exceed the cost of tuition. Scholarship recipients often qualify for additional need-based financial assistance, including grants, work-study programs, and loans.
