Congratulations on your decision to enroll at Knox College. This is where you will find the things you need to know as you prepare for life at Knox. It includes information about campus life, health and safety, tuition and financial aid, academics, and much more.

You are embarking on a personal, educational, social, and cultural journey that will forever change your life. When you find that you need support, guidance, or just a simple answer to a question, the Student Development staff—along with the entire Knox faculty and staff—are ready and eager to assist you. We care deeply about your success and look forward to helping you become the person you want to be.

3 Things to Do Right Now

  1. Check items off your to-do list.
    Log into your  Pre-Arrival Tracker. This works just like your AppTracker (and requires the same login information). Your Pre-Arrival Tracker is where you will find a checklist of the items that need to be completed before you arrive at Knox, like choosing your housing preferences, taking placement exams, and letting us know what student organizations interest you.
  2. Meet Your Class on Instagram.
    Join the Knox College Class of 2028 Instagram page. It's a great way to introduce yourself to your future classmates. 
  3. Start planning now for what you should (and shouldn't) bring to campus.
    Find out what's already furnished in your room and see a packing list of those things that you should bring to campus.
