As an accredited college, Hilbert’s independent institution of higher learning is committed to education. An academic journey with us includes both challenging academics and the embrace of our Franciscan values. Students from all backgrounds are educated in liberal arts and professional programs to become informed citizens committed to serving and strengthening their communities.

The Hilbert Difference  

  • Our Franciscan Values help us embrace the traditions of St. Francis, which include respect, service, hope, vision, joy, integrity, compassion, and peace. 
  • Our Flexible Arrangements allow you to study on your schedule. Our online degrees offer a self-paced environment within 7.5-week classes and six start dates throughout the year.  View our 2021-22 Academic Calendar. 
  • Transfer your credits easily. We accept up to 90 credits for a bachelor’s degree and 45 credits for an associate degree! 
  • Think that an online program won’t offer the same faculty-to-student relationships? Think again – our faculty care means personal attention. Faculty office hours and zoom calls are available for our online students.
  • Our affordability rate means you can focus on your academics, rather than the cost. At $295 per credit hour with financial aid is available, your return on investment is that much higher.
