Pioneer One-Card

The Pioneer One-Card has a debit account option, allowing the card to be used on campus to make purchases without carrying cash. Funds from that account can be used at the College Bookstore, vending machines, Marketplace and the Spencer Grill. Funds can be added online with a credit card at https://get.cbord.com/grinnell. When on campus, students can add money to their account at the Cashier Office or at a cash value machine in the Joe Rosenfield '25 Center.

Cashier Forms

Billing Authorization Form

The Billing Authorization form is required by Federal Law to be on file for each student. The form authorizes Grinnell College to provide billing information to designated individuals and provides direction on how to handle Title IV Financial Aid 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.


The College engages its faculty and assigns residence hall space in advance of each semester in accordance with the number of students who have signified intent to be enrolled. When students withdraw during the semester, they leave vacancies that cannot be filled. The following rules concerning refunds protect Grinnell from losses when students withdraw.

International Bank Transfers

Grinnell College has partnered with flywire by peerTransfer to streamline the tuition payment process for our international students.

With flywire, you are offered excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save a significant amount of money as compared to traditional banks. You will also be able to track where your payment is in the transfer process via a student dashboard and an email confirmation will be sent to you when Grinnell receives your payment.
