All financial aid deadlines and requirements still apply. Awards for the fall semester are generally mailed in June. If you have questions about your own personal financial aid situation, please contact Gretchen Zimmermann, Associate Director of Financial Aid.


Grinnell College pays for several course-related expenses such as cultural events and admissions fees on field trips.
