The Hendrix Four-Year Guarantee

Enroll in the Hendrix Four-Year Guarantee, choose a major and stick to that major, be a full-time student with a full course load, and maintain the standards of academic progress at Hendrix.

Meet the criteria above and you will graduate from Hendrix in four years. If you don’t, the remaining Hendrix College courses you need to graduate are yours. Tuition free. That’s the Hendrix Four-Year Guarantee.

Sign up for the Hendrix Four-Year Guarantee, and we’ll make sure courses are available for you to complete the Collegiate Center, Odyssey Program, and major requirements for a baccalaureate degree by the end of your eighth consecutive semester at Hendrix.

If you meet the Hendrix Four-Year Guarantee conditions and still do not graduate in eight semesters, Hendrix will credit you the tuition for any remaining Hendrix courses you need to complete your degree.*

*The Hendrix Four-Year Guarantee is not available for transfer students. Joint degree programs with other institutions & programs that require coursework beyond the major are excluded from the Hendrix Four-Year Guarantee.
