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 are required to operate the laundry machines and can also 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.

Cashier Forms

Billing Authorization Form

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.


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 peerTransfer to streamline the tuition payment process for our international students. With peerTransfer, 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 your payment is received by the school.

Tuition Payment Plan

Grinnell College understands that sometimes you need some help managing your tuition bill. That's why we offer the Grinnell College tuition payment plan administered by Higher One®. Payment plans are convenient, manageable payment solutions that give you the option to pay tuition in interest-free monthly installments, rather than one lump sum. Tuition payment plans offer:

Online Payments

Billing statements are available electronically and payments may be made via the web. Parents can make payments online only if their student sets them up as an authorized user. To make a person an authorized user, the student will need to access his/her PioneerWeb account, click on the Services tab, click on "View my statement and pay online", click on "View my bills and make a payment." Be sure to only hit enter once each time. When the welcome screen appears, click on Authorized User at the top and follow the instructions.


The cashier’s office is responsible for the billing of tuition, fees and related charges and collecting payments related to those charges.  The office also processes deposits to the Pioneer One-Card and provides information about student fees and forms, health insurance, billing schedule, comprehensive fee, tuition payment plan, international bank transfers, refunds, and more.
