Make your personal check to the order of Grinnell College with the student's name in the memo portion.

Cash or Personal Check at Cashier Office

Payment may be made at the Cashier Office in the John Chrystal Center with either cash or personal check. The Cashier Office cannot accept credit or debit cards for payment to billing statements.

Online Payments

During the semester, electronic statements are updated monthly via the web.

Parents and others may view online statements only if their student sets them up as an authorized user. To make a person an authorized user, the student will need to:

  1. Log in to his/her e-billing account.
  2. When the welcome screen appears, click on Authorized User at the top and follow the instructions.

Authorized people will get emails with instructions which will take them to the student account where statements can be viewed and payments can be made online.

See Online Payments for further information.
