• We believe in making Hendrix College affordable and accessible.

    As a top-tier, nationally ranked liberal arts college, we believe our unique opportunities for experiential learning, rigorous inquiry, and cultivating creativity should be available to all qualified students.

  • It's to Your Advantage

    Admitted first-year students will pay no more in tuition and fees at Hendrix than the published tuition rate at their home state's public flagship university.

    Tuition Advantage 2024

    Once you are admitted to Hendrix, we award merit scholarships and institutional grants based on your application AND THEN calculate the difference in tuition and fees between Hendrix and your home state's public, flagship institution's published tuition and fees.

    If Hendrix tuition and fees are still higher than your state flagship's tuition and fees, your Tuition Advantage Scholarship will make up the difference. And outside scholarships, state and federal aid can lower your cost more!

    Bottom line — No admitted first-year student at Hendrix pays more in tuition and fees than the published tuition and fees for the flagship institution in their home state. Your admission counselor will pore over your application, reviewing your academics, leadership involvement,  extracurricular and volunteer work. Head here to get your application started or connect with your admission counselor to talk things through. 

    Add housing & food costs to this Tuition Advantage flagship rate and students get the experience of a private school education for the cost of a public school tuition price.
