Tuition and financial aid

Attending college requires a significant investment of time and money. Henderson can help you figure out what it will cost to attend as well as where you can get financial aid.


Henderson calculates tuition on a per hour rate. For the 2014-2015 academic year, 

  • In-state tuition per hour is $199 for undergraduates.
  • Out-of-state tuition per hour is $411 for undergraduates.

2015-2016 Costs (projected)

That means that projected costs for the 2015-2016 academic year - for a full-time, in-state student taking 15 hours per semester - are:

  • Tuition - $5,970
  • Mandatory fees - 1,592
  • Room - 4,000
  • Meals - 3,022
  • Books - 1,600

  Total - $16,184

We have a cost and fee sheet so that you can see exactly how your tuition and fees are broken down.

At Henderson, we work to make the college experience more affordable. How can you work to connect your academic aspirations with a successful career? Scholarships, financial aid and tuition payment programs can help. 

Each year, more than 90 percent of Henderson undergraduates receive financial aid. This comes in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and work-study programs. Aid is awarded based on a number of factors, including financial need, academic merit and proficiency in athletics and the arts.
