Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

4.37 Average Rating
Hendrix is very expensive, but it is an incredible school. The social atmosphere and incredible learning opportunities make it worthwhile.
Paige from Eureka Springs, AR
Hendrix costs a pretty penny. All in all, the money is worth it. The community helps to promote growth academically and socially. There are a lot of community activities to attend like dances, concerts and parties; paid for by the student senate using your student activities fee. The teachers all know your names and faces and are more than willing to help you with extra lessons if need be. The money you spend definitely seems worth it while you are there.
Samantha from Conway, AR
The only really depressing part about Hendrix is that it is private and extremely expensive. However, the money is worth it if you are staying for the complete four years. They also have a ton of scholarships that they are willing to hand out to any student who has worked hard enough to obtain them. Hendrix has a high price, but if your planning on medical school, law school, or graduate school, then it is absolutely worth the extra bucks.
Desire from Sallisaw, OK
The college is VERY expensive, and also very nice. However, that sets an extremely high standard which the college can have a tough time living up to. Overall, it's a great college and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else, but the prices can be smothering at times.
Scott from Malvern, AR
It definitely is worth the tuition. There are many Hendrix graduates who have gone on to do wonderful things in the world from assisting the hunger problems in Africa and other poor countries to helping students here in the U.S. Plus, with the Odyssey program, you have the opportunity to study abroad anywhere in the world for free! If you are able to be picked for the funding of course.
Katey from Greenfield, IA
The tuition is about $40,000 which is a bit steep, but every student here receives some form of financial aid and I know that I was able to get about half of my tuition covered through their scholarships. It is definitely worth it when you take into account the variety of classes, new facilities, and the general environment.
Cassie from Ipswich, MA
Hendrix is expensive but the campus itself is gorgeous with great academics and the highest percentage of graduates accepted into graduate programs/schools in the state
Caitlin from Fort Smith, AR
At Hendrix you will receive a top education that will better prepare you for graduate school than most other schools. The student to teacher ratio allows one on one interaction, something you will not find in large schools! Students are able to sit down with advisors who will get to know them personally and discuss their future careers and how to get there. Hendrix takes their students seriously and propels them forward to succeed in life after college.
