5 Ways To Prepare For Your Academic Journey

  1. Make the most of your Knox education. To help you take the greatest advantage 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.
  2. Choose your course preferences. Visit your student portal to complete the course preferences form. You will meet with your academic advisor when you arrive on campus for orientation to finalize your schedule.
  3. Find your best fit with placement exams. Knox offers placement exams in mathematics, foreign languages, and chemistry. You must take these short quizzes/exams, even if you believe you know where you should (or would like to) start out in a sequence, to ensure that you are placed in a class at the level appropriate for your skills. 
  4. Get your computer ready for our campus network. Make sure your laptop or other device meets all the hardware and wireless requirements to connect to the Knox Network.
  5. 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.
