4 Things to Do Right Now

  1. Check your e-mail.
    In case you missed it, check your e-mail for July 7. You received a link to your first assignment, a reading of the e-book Make Your Home Among Strangers

  2. Pay tuition, room, board, and fees.
    Tuition, room and board, and other fees are due in a few days. Learn about your options and payment due dates for the year. Before you arrive on campus, you also need to electronically sign a tuition payment master promissory note on your student portal.

  3. Get involved on campus and in the community.
    There's always something going on at Knox, and it's the students who make it happen! Knox has more than 100 student organizations. Want to get involved? Take an interest survey on your student portal and we'll pass your name to organization leaders so they can let you know how to jump-start your involvement at Knox.

  4. Develop the skills needed to address critical life issues.
    A Knox education is about more than learning in the classroom; it's about being part of a healthy campus community. For that reason, Knox requires all entering students to complete two online courses—AlcoholEdu and HAVEN—before they arrive on campus. These two courses will help you develop the skills needed to address critical life issues such as alcohol abuse prevention, sexual assault prevention, and bystander intervention. Learn more about the course on your student portal.
