Application information

Find out about requirements, fees, and deadlines


Hilbert College is a test-optional institution so SAT/ACT exam results are not required to receive an admissions decision or scholarship review!  Applicants are considered to be First-Year students when they have not previously attended any college or university.


All transfer applicants are required to submit any/all transcripts from their former institution(s) attended.  A final high school transcript will be required if the applicant does not have an associates degree or higher before entering.  Any student that has previously attended any college or university before attending Hilbert College will be considered a transfer student.  

Additional Information

Apply early!  Early applicants that are accepted will be considered for the best scholarships.  All applications are date-stamped and are reviewed within 24-48 hours of being received.  Scholarship offers will be indicated in each student's acceptance packet.  All students are encouraged to file a FAFSA (if possible) to qualify for any additional need-based aid, in addition to merit scholarships.
