4 Things to Do Right Now

  1. Choose Your First Course Preference: First-Year Preceptorial. First-Year Preceptorial (FP) is a small seminar course that all first-year students take. You have the option of taking FP as a traditional class or as part of a Living/Learning Community (LLC) where students live together in a suite and also take the same FP class together (We need to know if you're interested in an LLC by Monday, June 11). Learn more about the various FP courses offered this fall, then go to your student portal to choose your FP Course Preferences.
  2. Take Placement Exams. All incoming students must take placement exams. Even if you believe you know where you should (or would like to) start out in a math or foreign language sequence, taking the exams will ensure that you are placed in a class at the level appropriate for your skills. Learn more about placement exams.
  3. Submit your 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 maintain your eligibility for financial aid and scholarships, but also to assist your faculty advisor as you register for classes.
  4. Join the Class of 2022 Facebook Group. Meet your classmates, ask questions, and learn more about the Knox experience when you join the Class of 2022 Facebook Group. Also be sure to check out our main Facebook page, Twitter account, Flickr photostream, Instagram account, YouTube channel, and follow us on Snapchat at KnoxCollege1837.
