Campus Visit Hiatus

Grinnell College recognizes the global implications of the novel coronavirus COVID-19, and our highest priority is for the health and well-being of everyone affected by COVID-19. As a result, we are closed for campus visitors until further notice.

You can learn more about the College’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic on our website.

We are living in unprecedented times and we appreciate your patience and understanding. The Offices of Admission and Student Financial Services will be available via phone and email during business hours to answer any questions. Please email the Office of Admission or call 641-269-3600 for more information.

Virtual Visits

High school and community-based organization advisers / counselors are welcome to request a virtual presentation from the Office of Admission on a variety of topics ranging from a general overview of Grinnell to specifics on applying to a selective liberal arts college, the college essay, and college fit and financial aid. Our visits typically last 30-45 minutes and take place over Zoom.
