COVID-19 Update: While it's difficult to know exactly what to expect in the coming months, we fully expect to return to in-person instruction for fall term, with students living on campus. Of course, your safety is of paramount importance, so we are planning for multiple scenarios and promise to continue to communicate with you as the situation unfolds. 

4 Things to Do Right Now

  1. Sign up for a single room by July 9.
    We are working on plans for your safe arrival on campus, which includes measures to keep our residential community healthy. Discounted single rooms are available for fall term, but you must fill out a  Single Room Request Form by Thursday, July 9.
  2. Join us for an academic virtual Q&A on July 9.
    Join faculty and current students as they talk about the academic program at Knox and answer your questions about courses, academic advisors, and anything else you would like to know about what your academic life will be like at Knox. Join the live discussion at 5 p.m. CDT on Thursday, July 9Use this link (if prompted, the password is "Knox") to access the discussion. Have a question you'd like faculty and students to answer during the Q&A? Send it to
  3. Tell us your first course preference.
    First-Year Preceptorial is a small seminar course all first-year students take. Learn more about the various FP courses offered this fall, then go to your student portal to choose your FP Course Preferences.
  4. Take placement exams.
    Accurate course placement is vital to your academic success at Knox. Research shows that students who begin their college study at the appropriate level enjoy greater progress and achievement. Even if you believe you know where you should (or would like to) start out in a math, second language, or music 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.
