The Billing Authorization form is required by Federal Law to be on file in order for the College to release any financial information to individuals other than the student. The form authorizes Grinnell College to provide billing information to designated individuals and provides direction on how to handle credit balances. The form must be completed in order for the College to release any information to people other than the student. Complete the Billing Authorization Form.
Health Insurance Plan
The College requires all students to be covered by a health insurance policy. All students have been billed $1,025 for the student health insurance offered through Grinnell College on the Fall billing statement. The coverage is from August 14, 2012, to August 13, 2013. If a student has comparable insurance that covers them in Grinnell, Iowa, then there is the option to wiave out of the plan offered by the College. Students must complete an online waiver form. The waiver form is available at https://www.sas-mn.com/waiveonline/grinnell_form.php. Upon completion of the online waiver form, the cost of the insurance will be credited to the student billing statement. The deadline to complete the waiver form and receive credit is August 30, 2012. Waiver forms will not be accepted after this date and the student will be enrolled in the Student Health Insurance plan offered by the College.
All Grinnell students will make a $100 damage deposit which is separate from the advance tuition deposit and is included as a charge on the billing statement. This deposit serves as a key deposit and breakage deposit for the residence halls and for any fines or charges at the end of each semester. Prior to billing each Fall semester, the $100 level will be replenished. Upon graduation or withdrawl from the College, the unused deposit will be credited to the billing statement.
Students living in college-owned housing are provided local telephone service.
