Information for Maymester Applicants

Note: Currently enrolled Hendrix College students do not need to submit an application for admission for Maymester. 

Individuals wishing to enroll in Maymester at Hendrix College without entering a degree program* are invited to apply for admission as Special Students. Those who are admitted as Special Students for Maymester may take one Maymester course per year. There is a separate Application for Admission for Maymester along with a $40 application fee and a $500 nonrefundable enrollment deposit. Once accepted for admission as a Special Student, and upon receipt of the enrollment deposit, an applicant works directly with the Office of the Registrar to enroll in a course. There is no financial aid available to Special Students.

*Maymester is not designed as an appropriate entry point for degree-seeking students, and students who will enter Hendrix College in the upcoming fall semester are not eligible for enrollment in Maymester 2011.
