A successful academic experience begins with a strong foundation. Make the most of your academic life at Knox:
Preparing For 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 upon which you're about to embark.
Math? Art? Chinese? Anthropology? Choosing Your Courses
When you arrive on campus for orientation on January 3, you will meet with your advisor to determine your course schedule. You and your advisor will reach an agreement on the best courses for you to take as you start your career at Knox, so feel free to peruse the list of open courses and winter term course schedule as you begin thinking about what you'd like to take. When your course selection is finalized, the Knox College Bookstore has textbooks to rent or buy.
Placement Exams Help You Find the Best Fit
Knox offers placement exams in mathematics and foreign languages. These short online exams help us ensure that you're enrolled in the level appropriate for your skills. Learn more about placement exams.
Get your computer ready for our campus network
There are some simple steps you can take before you arrive at Knox to prepare your computer for our network. Check out our new computer user webpage to make sure your computer's requirements are up-to-date.

Submit Your Final Transcripts and Test Scores
Don't forget to submit your final secondary school transcript and any additional transcripts for college coursework you have completed. Now is also the time to submit your AP and IB scores for college credit and your ACT and SAT scores if you did not submit them during your application process.

To give you the tools and support you need to succeed in your academic careers, Knox has several offices to provide information, resources, and faculty guidance to help you access and navigate the range of opportunities at the College. These education centers provides academic support, gateways to experiences like study abroad, community service, internships and careers, and research and scholarship—and all will help you get the most from your Knox educational experience.
