Grinnell College Will Remain Need-Blind - For Now

About Financial Aid at Grinnell One of the nation's premier liberal arts colleges, Grinnell is also consistently included among the nation's "best value" colleges. Grinnell is one of just 45 U.S. educational institutions that remain need-blind, admitting students based solely on academic merit and without regard to financial need, and meeting 100 percent of the demonstrated need of every admitted student. Grinnell's discount rate—a calculation of the true amount the average student contributes toward to the comprehensive fee, as compared to the "list price" of tuition, room, board and fees—is one of the highest in the nation, second only to Harvard's, indicating Grinnell's extraordinarily strong commitment to meeting the full demonstrated need of all admitted students. Almost 90 percent of Grinnell students receive some form of financial aid, and the average financial aid award is $35,388. Grinnell students graduate with less debt than students from any other accredited public or private college or university in Iowa, and with less debt than students from most of Grinnell's peer schools nationally, making Grinnell one of the most affordable highly selective colleges or universities in the U.S.

About Grinnell College Since its founding in 1846, Grinnell has become one of the nation's premier liberal arts colleges, enrolling 1,600 students from all 50 states and from as many international countries. Grinnell's rigorous academic program emphasizes excellence in education for students in the liberal arts; the college offers the B.A. degree in a range of departments across the humanities, arts and sciences. Grinnell has a strong tradition of social responsibility and action, and self-governance and personal responsibility are key components of campus life.
