Welcome to Knox College! The Knox community is excited to meet you. During your first days at Knox, you'll have a chance to recover from jetlag, get items you may not have been able to pack, open a bank account, purchase a cell phone, and begin learning what to expect in a U.S. college classroom. You'll also meet your new classmates and current students, as well as learn more about Knox and Galesburg. Please reference the information below as you're applying for your visa, making travel plans, and preparing to begin your studies at Knox.

You and your parents are invited to a virtual Pre-Departure Q&A on Saturday, July 29, at 8:00 a.m. U.S. Central Time. Please join the Office of International Student Services (OISS) for a brief presentation about getting to campus, insurance, banking, cell phones, and much more. Following the presentation, OISS staff and a current international student will be available to answer any questions you have. You can access the presentation here, and we recommend that you click the link above ahead of time, as you may need to download a WebEx app. When the session begins, you'll receive a pop-up invitation to join an "Integrated Voice Conference," which you should accept in order to hear our presentation. If you plan to attend this session, you can register for it on your student portal—and let us know what you have questions about. You may also download our slideshow here.
