Paying for Hendrix: Financial Aid & Scholarships

You want to know the bottom line when it comes to paying for college. The bottom line is … You can afford Hendrix. Not only is Hendrix one of the nation’s best liberal arts colleges, but thanks to the financial aid and scholarships we offer, we’re also one of the most affordable.

Every Student Gets Help

Every Hendrix student receives some form of financial assistance — from need-based financial aid to scholarships for academic achievement, leadership and service experience, and fine arts performance. Along with financial aid and scholarships, there are grants, loans and other types of aid available to make Hendrix affordable for you.

Hendrix Advantage Plus

Hendrix Advantage Plus will cover 100 percent of financial need for high school seniors who have a 3.6 or higher GPA and who have scored at least a 26 ACT or 1230 SAT (Statement on Comparing ACT and SAT results). The program will meet students’ demonstrated financial need through all forms of financial assistance, including merit scholarships, need-based grants, federal and state grants, federal student loans and student employment. Apply for admission to Hendrix and complete the FAFSA to be considered.
