Textbooks for Spring 1 and Spring 2
No matter where you are, you can get your textbooks from the Pioneer Bookshop. If you are in Grinnell, we ask that you order them online and pick them up at the Pioneer Bookshop, 933 Main Street. If you are living on campus, we can send your order to the mailroom. If you are learning remotely, we will ship your books to you. You might prefer to buy a digital book and get access right away. Click on "Textbooks", choose Spring 1, 2021 and then your classes. You can see what books are required and choose between, new, used or digital (when available). When you place your order, choose "Buy Online, Pick Up in Store" or "Deliver to Campus" for your shipping preference. If you are learning remotely, choose Postal Service. Here is the direct link to the textbook pages. https://grinnell.verbacompare.com/
Textbook Advances Now Available
We know you have a lot of expenses at the beginning of the term. We want to help you spread out the cost of your textbooks. We now offer Textbook Advances! If you are a Grinnell College student, you have been given $150.00 to use on your purchase of textbooks (only textbooks). You must use it by February 12, 2021. The amount you use will be added to your tuition bill and must be paid before the next term. You then have another $150.00 available for the next term. When ordering online, choose Textbook Advance at Checkout. Remember, you can only use this on textbooks. If you add a sweatshirt, you will need to also provide a credit card.
