You’re ready to take the next step in becoming a Grinnellian.
We’re here to tell you what you need, connect you to resources, and help you with any questions.
Admission to Grinnell is highly selective, and our students come from all different backgrounds. However, while no single factor guarantees admission, there are some characteristics that are undeniably Grinnellian, and can help you stand out from the rest. For example, showing that you’ve taken a challenging, balanced high school curriculum. That you’re ready to explore the world and contribute to the greater good. And that you’re eager to find your place in a supportive, inspiring community. If this sounds like you, request information to get access to additional information about application timelines, scholarships, and the college search process. To apply, we’ll need you to submit the Common Application and a few other things.
