Nearly 60 percent of Grinnell students participate in off-campus study. Whatever your interests, you can deepen and expand your education by studying in a variety of countries, including our program in England, Grinnell-in-London, or U.S. locations, such as Grinnell-in-Washington. Grinnell pre-approves off-campus courses as general credit or to count toward your major or concentration. When selecting a program, faculty advisers, and OCS staff will help you to select a program matched to your academic goals.
