Here at Grinnell, students create academic discourse from a wide spectrum of beliefs and opinions. Diversity of thought plays an integral role in academic growth, and as an international student you hold a unique card in this dialogue. We welcome young people from all over the globe--dedicated students from every country, religion, ethnicity, and background. Your thirst for knowledge, your drive to succeed, and your sense of adventure make you a Grinnellian! At Grinnell you will find a large international student population, a supportive host family, a rigorous academic community, and a home away from home.
Applying to colleges from outside the United States can be particularly daunting - often without the benefit of face-to-face contact with an admission counselor or the opportunity to visit campus. These pages were designed to provide all of the information you need, including answers to the most common questions we receive from international applicants. Please use this site as your first and most comprehensive source for information. Feel free to e-mail us if you have questions that are not addressed here.
