Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.68 Average Rating
Knox is modern. It is also old. This is where the Lincoln and Douglass debate occurred making it easy for Knox to gain doners. The cafeteria food is ok but the classes are great, tons of days just for students to have fun, and a day called FLUNK DAY. This is a day when school is canceled and students get a whole day of fun that the campus sets up for the students.
Steven from Chicago, IL
a little expensive, but not outrageous.
Sara from Littleton, CO
This school has a history in financial aid. Originally a labor college, the Knox of today is more than willing to provide generous merit and financial aid to prospective students, making its cost competitive with public universities.
Ian from Troy, MI
Knox is a very expensive school, closely reaching the $50,000 per year tuition mark. Despite this, the college does its best to help students to attend without worrying about the cost of the school, especially if you are a student with higher need. (I can honestly tell you that personally. The financial aid package was the deciding factor for me when I chose Knox.)
Adilene from Atlanta, GA
The education at Knox is invaluable to students, whether they go on to more schooling or real life jobs. It prepares students for their futures, and I think it is worth the price you pay. The price tag might seem hefty, but most students receive financial aid, and this makes it more manageable.
Derinn from Springfield, IL
Don't let the price tag scare you away: Knox gives out a very generous amount of financial aid, and even the offer they make to your is negotiable. When I was given my first financial aid deal, it had a bigger final price tag than my second choice. I e-mailed the financial aid office and explained my situation to them, and after providing the documents from my second choice, Knox sent me a new offer that beat the other school's, cementing Knox as the school I would attend the next fall.
Grant from Arlington Heights, IL
Expensive, a few buildings are aging for the amount given to go there, but Professors are top notch.
John from Hartland, WI
Granted, Knox is a pricey school, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. The dorms are generally well-maintained, the food is good, the classes are worthwhile, interesting, and challenging, and the class-size is hard to beat. I would say it's worth what I'm paying.
