New Student Orientation

Welcome new students, families, and guests. We are so excited to welcome you to the Grinnell community! We are currently working on the New Student Orientation (NSO) schedule for the 2020 school year. As more information becomes available the website will be updated. Should you have any questions please email the NSO team


If you or a family member requires an accommodation in order to attend or fully participate in this event please contact Assistant Dean of Disability Resources Autumn Wilke. To learn more about the accommodation process consider attending Navigating Grinnell: Services and Supports for Students with Disabilities or contact Disability Resources at 641-269-3089.

Requests for an ASL interpreter or closed captioning must be made at least two weeks in advance of NSO.

International Students

The International Pre-Orientation Program (IPOP) takes place immediately preceding NSO, in order to support the unique regulatory and culture transition for students coming from outside of the U.S.A. F-1 students are required to attend IPOP, in addition to participating in NSO. Visit the Office of International Student Affairs for more details about IPOP, and the variety of services and programs that help make Grinnell an International Student Friendly campus.
