As students prepare to resume classes in person as well as online, our goal is to preserve what is special about living and learning together and to find new ways to continue the close collaboration between faculty and students that is a hallmark of a Knox education even in this unprecedented time.

To ensure that all students have the opportunity to fully experience a human-powered Knox education, Knox is offering the “Fifth Year for Free” Guarantee. It allows students enrolled at Knox for the 2020-21 academic year to return to campus for up to an additional year of study tuition-free.

The Fifth Year for Free Guarantee is available to any Knox student who:

  • Is enrolled as a full-time, degree-seeking student for all three terms of the 2020-21 academic year.
  • Completes four years of study at Knox (or, for transfer students, the last two years at Knox after completing two years at another college) with at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average, and enrolls in the fall, winter, and/or spring term during the academic year immediately following their fourth year.
  • Enrolls in courses during the fifth year that are taught on the Knox campus and required to complete degree requirements. Study abroad and off-campus study courses are not eligible.
  • Students must work with their academic advisors to determine appropriate course selection and to ensure that they will have additional courses that must be completed during the fifth year to fulfill degree requirements.

Student-athletes should consult with the athletics department regarding eligibility requirements.

The Fifth Year for Free Guarantee will provide a full-tuition scholarship for up to three terms of study during the fifth year, minus any federal, state, or institutional grants or scholarships for which the student ordinarily qualifies. Students must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for federal or state grants. Other costs, including student fees, room, and board are the responsibility of the student. Federal student and parent loans may be available, subject to aggregate loan limits. Check with the Student Financial Services Office to confirm your eligibility.
