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

While your journey will be distinctive, you won't be undertaking it alone. Your professors at Knox will be a big part of your journey, as will the staff and your fellow students. The resources below will help you along the way.

Placement Exams Help You Find the Best Fit
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.

Transition to college experiences: we have three!
Knox offers three programs for eligible students to assist in their transition to college. More information can be found on your student portal

Learn more about your academic journey.
To help you make the most of the many opportunities for inquiry and creativity that a Knox education has to offer, here are a few ways to think about the academic journey on which you're about to begin.

Make the most of your academic experience with support services.
Knox also has many centers to support your Knox experience, including writing support and tutoring for students in all majors and at all levels; internships and career planning; off-campus study; and independent research and creative work. These resources will prove invaluable in your Knox journey.

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.
