Cost & Financial Aid

Figuring out how to help offset the cost of higher education shouldn't be a source of frustration. Get the resources you need to help pay for your education - 95% of our students receive aid from state and federal funds, with over $7 million awarded last year. Our net price calculator can help you estimate how much it will cost to attend Hilbert, or you can get a more accurate range by talking with our student finance staff, who will help you every step of the way.

Student Services 

We pride ourselves on making sure our students have all the support they need, even after graduating. Our Franciscan heritage calls on us to create a diverse community that is inclusive, responsive, and supportive of all students, staff, and faculty. We offer individual counseling, support groups, wellness, sport psychology consultation, community referrals, consultation to faculty, staff, and students, and support for families. 

At our Success, Retention, & Career Support office, we support proactive outreach and intervention to individual students and student populations to identify and address areas of concern, while bolstering leadership opportunities. 

Our Campus Safety monitors our campus 24/7 by patrolling and offering services to our campus community, ensuring a safe environment for students to flourish. Our blue emergency light phones are positioned around campus for an immediate connection to our Campus Safety office. 

Our vibrant student life means that social, intellectual, and cultural activities are provided year-round for students to connect with classmates, grow in leadership, and have fun while participating in the college experience. Some fun examples from the past year include bubble soccer, petting zoos, axe throwing, movie nights, and glow parties.

Day of Service
Our dedication to our community is a cherished value, which is why incoming students enrolled in traditional undergraduate programs are required to complete service learning as part of an academic course in order to graduate. 

Campus Ministry
Whether you are of a different faith, or no faith, all are welcome to our a variety of opportunities for building relationships, faith development and enrichment, pastoral and spiritual counseling, on-and-off campus programs, discussions, community outreach, faith sharing, and worship.
