Financial Aid

"How can we afford the benefit of a private college?"

Let us tell you. During the past school year, Hampden-Sydney offered over $31 million in financial assistance in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and employment. Many families find a Hampden-Sydney education easily affordable - despite what they thought!

A Hampden-Sydney education is definitely worth every penny. Hampden-Sydney was ranked among Kiplinger's 2014 Best College Values in liberal arts colleges. Students here stand apart because of

  • small classes taught by professors who want them to succeed,
  • the safety and spaciousness of our 1340-acre campus in rural Virginia,
  • the emphasis on values - honor, integrity, and commitment,
  • the spirit of community and brotherhood,
  • alumni job-networking,
  • traditions of a college which for two centuries has educated men to be leaders.

Hampden-Sydney College has a need-based program to help families who cannot afford the total cost of the College, as well as a non-need-based program through our Academic Scholarships and Citizen-Leader Scholarships.

If you have any questions, please contact us. We will help you maintain your sanity (and, hopefully, a sense of humor) throughout the college-search and financial aid process.
