Take online courses and be part of a healthy campus community
A Knox education is about more than learning in the classroom; it's about being part of a healthy campus community. You need to complete AlcoholEdu & Haven, online courses on alcohol abuse prevention and sexual assault prevention before you arrive or within the first week of classes in the Winter. Learn more about the online courses.
Dining Plans Offer Variety, Flexibility
Whether you prefer to eat in the dining hall, snack bar, or on the run, Knox offers a variety of dining plans to fit your needs, with an emphasis on flexibility. Visit your student portal to choose your plan.
Student Account Center
Knox has an enhanced online web portal, called the Student Account Center (SAC) at knox.afford.com. This center, administered by Tuition Management Systems, allows students (and those they designate) to receive term bills and monthly account statements, make payments, and set up term payment plans. Learn more about payment due dates and how to make payments.
Financial Aid, Scholarships, and Loans
If you will be receiving financial aid, the pending financial aid credits shown on your term billing statement are based on the most recent information we have in the Financial Aid Office. Contact the Office of Financial Aid if you have questions about pending financial aid, scholarship, or loan credits on your account. Learn more about financial aid, scholarships, and loans.
Healthcare Right Around the Corner (Or Across the Quad)
Medical care is provided on campus by Health Services. There is no cost per visit and no limit to the number of visits you can make to the office, which provides basic healthcare for illness and injuries. Learn more about Health Services at Knox.
Insurance Plan Covers Accidents On and Off Campus
It's good to know that you're automatically enrolled in an accident insurance plan that provides specified medical benefits if you're accidentally injured either on or off campus. Learn more about the accident insurance plan.
The Comfort of Comprehensive Coverage
All Knox students are strongly advised to have comprehensive health insurance. While basic health care is available through campus Health Services, additional medical expenses are your financial responsibility. Knox does not offer comprehensive health insurance plans for students, but we have identified some available options. Learn more about voluntary insurance options.
Meeting Your Mental Health Needs
Wellness is more than just your physical health. Confidential counseling, outreach, and consultations are available free of charge to all Knox students, where you have the opportunity to talk with an objective professional about your feelings and concerns. Learn more about Counseling Services.
Get involved on campus and in the community.
There's always something going on at Knox, and it's the students who make it happen! Knox has more than 100 student clubs and organizations. Want to get involved?
