Welcome to your Knox educational experience. Now is the time to begin taking those first steps toward intellectual discovery.

Learn about your academic journey.
What kinds of courses will you take? Who will help guide you? Learn about what you can expect to happen during your academic journey at Knox.

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, foreign 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.

Choose your First-Year Preceptorial course preference.
First-Year Preceptorial (FP) is a small seminar course that 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.

Choose your course preferences.
At Knox, a typical academic schedule is three one-credit courses per term. Most Knox courses are one credit. For first-year students, one of your fall courses is First-Year Preceptorial (FP). To submit preferences for your other two courses, (or three courses if you're a transfer student), visit your student portal to complete the Course Preferences form.

Check computer requirements.

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.
