In July, you will meet virtually with your academic advisor to choose your classes for fall term. Before that meeting, it is important that your advisor have access to the most up-to-date academic information about you, because accurate course placement is vital to your academic success at Knox—and we want you to be successful! Research shows that students who begin their college study taking courses that are challenging, yet not overwhelming, enjoy greater progress and achievement.
Final Transcripts and Test Scores
Be sure to request that a final high school transcript, any relevant test scores (AP, IB, GCE), and any college records be sent to Knox. We need this information not only to assist your faculty advisor as you register for classes, but to maintain your eligibility for financial aid and scholarships.
These are the only exams you'll take at Knox where we specifically ask you NOT to study! A placement exam is just a short test you take to help your advisor determine the level of academic skill you already have in a specific academic area. At Knox, we offer placement exams in mathematics, some second languages, and music. All incoming students must take placement exams. Even if you believe you know where you should (or would like to) start out in these areas of study, taking the exams will ensure that you are placed in a class at the level appropriate for your skills. You can Learn more about placement exams here and take the exams on your Pre-Arrival Tracker.
So that your academic advisor has time to review your placement exams, transcripts, and other materials before your virtual meeting in July, please make sure that they have been submitted by June 21.
