 The Academic Catalog

The Grinnell College Academic Catalog is a general summary of rules, policies, and procedures for the academic programs of the College. It is not a binding statement of these rules, policies, and procedures and should not be relied on as such. Anyone wishing to learn of the exact version of a rule, policy, or procedure, as they are in effect from time to time, will need to consult with the Grinnell College registrar or review the Student Handbook or other official College publications. If further information is needed, inquiries may be addressed to the appropriate persons listed in the Directory section  at the back.
