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.

Tuition

Henderson calculates tuition on a per hour rate. For the 2015-2016 academic year, 

  • In-state tuition per hour is $207 for undergraduates.
  • Out-of-state tuition per hour is $427 for undergraduates.

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. 

Cost of Attendance

A student's Cost of Attendance (COA), also referred to as the student's budget, is the estimated amount it will cost to attend school. Cost of Attendance is determined using rules established by federal and state laws. This number is used by the school to determine the maximum amount of financial aid (loans, grants, scholarships, fee-waivers, etc.) a student may receive for that award year.  Please note: The cost of attendance does not represent the actual charges on a student's account. Actual charges may be higher, lower, or absent all-together than the charges shown on the COA. For instance, a student living off-campus or with parents will still have an estimated room and board allowance in his/her COA, but would not be charged for room and board by Henderson State University.
