Applications for 2017-18 Academic Year

The TRIO Achievement Program is funded to serve 185 students (new and continuing). Students who are interested in participating must complete the online TRIO application and may be asked to provide additional documentation to verify their eligibility for TRIO.

Each year, approximately 45-65 new participants are selected to join the program. Recruitment and selection of new TRIO participants occur during the summer prior to your first term at Knox College (Early Admission Period) and throughout New Student Orientation (Priority Admission Period).

Applications for participation from both new and continuing Knox students are accepted and evaluated throughout the academic year; however, the program typically has a waiting list by the first day of class in the fall. Students may be admitted from the waiting list if openings become available following participation reviews at the end of each term.
