Welcome to the Hendrix College website for prospective international students. We value the different cultural perspectives international students bring to the Hendrix community, and we believe international students will find making Hendrix home an easy and enjoyable experience. Being an international student at Hendrix College means being a part of a vibrant community of scholars made up of approximately 1,500 students who hail from more than 20 countries and nearly all of the states of the Union.
Should you decide to become a part of our family, you will find yourself a part of a body of learning whose interests and influences span across the globe. The small classes at Hendrix feature vigorous yet informal debate and discussion. Our students and faculty are not only tolerant of differences but openly celebrate them! Plus, we believe that learning doesn't end with class. The Hendrix College Odyssey Program provides a rich array of opportunities to be an "engaged learner" through such activities as leadership training, community service and artistic ventures.
Hendrix College’s rigorous liberal arts and sciences curriculum combines critical thought with engaged learning in a way that challenges our students and prepares our graduates for graduate school and their professional careers.

Hendrix College Summer Institute for English Language and Culture
The Summer Institute is designed to lay a strong academic foundation for international students and students for whom English is not a first language. Placing students in level-appropriate English courses assures rapid progress in the language. Further, orientation activities, cross-cultural discussions, and study-skills development prepare participants for the unique, liberal arts environment, as well as provide students with tools for the first year and beyond. The ten-week Summer Institute—at a cost of $5,500—is an important component of a successful international student career at Hendrix.
