The financial return on investing in an education begins with your first job. Fortunately, Hampden-Sydney men begin their careers earning more than graduates from other schools. But in the meantime, our Financial Aid Office is here to help you make your education more affordable.

Hampden-Sydney is among the best colleges with exceptional return on investment for your tuition, says The Princeton Review.

During the past school year, Hampden-Sydney offered over $31 million in financial assistance in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and employment. We have a need-based program to help families who cannot afford the total cost of the College, as well as a non-need-based program which awards  Academic and Leadership Scholarships.

My decision to attend H-SC was cemented after my family and I talked with members of the financial aid staff, and I understood their commitment to helping students find a way to afford an H-SC education.
