Biology

The Biology, Chemistry, and Biological Chemistry majors are designed so that a student does not need to choose among them until registration for the fourth semester. Entering students who are deciding among these three majors should take BIO 150 and CHM 129 (General Chemistry) during the first year-one course in the fall and one course in the spring.
 

Art

 
The studio arts welcome students both with experience and without experience. Introductory studio classes are often overenrolled and preference is given to incoming First Years and declared Art majors. The Department advises all majors to go on an off-campus program, and to study a foreign language. We will work with you to create a 4-year plan to accommodate these goals.
 

Anthropology

The department requires that a student take at least one 200-level anthropology course before taking ANT 280. Students must have at least one 200 level course in cultural or linguistic anthropology to enroll in ANT 292.

Got Grit? Take a break from studying and learn how grit can help you succeed in stressful times. Join panelists from the faculty, writing lab, student affairs, athletics, CLS, SHACS, and wellness in discussing what it means to have grit and how you can persevere in tough times.

Academic Policies

Although Grinnell College is noted for its open curriculum -- consistent with our philosophy of self-governance -- the College is not without a significant number of policies related to a student's academic life. As a student you should know that often there is little or no flexibility within these policies and that, in some cases, not following them can have significant academic consequences. If you have questions about any of the following policies or other procedures at the College first consult the Student Handbook.
