Admission decisions are based upon academic competence and preparation, dedication
to learning, and motivation to participate fully in the Hendrix community. Hendrix
is nonsectarian in its admission decisions. We seek students of varied interests
and talents, representative of many social, economic, and geographical backgrounds.
Admission is not limited by age, race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, or
national origin of the applicant. Hendrix expects students to demonstrate their
seriousness of purpose by participating in a college preparatory curriculum throughout
their high school careers.
As a result of ongoing technical issues with the Common Application,
the deadline to apply for Early Action I consideration has been extended by two
weeks to November 29, 2013.
How to Apply
There are two ways to apply to Hendrix College. You may use Hendrix’s own institutional
