Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
The cost is pretty affordable for most students with the help of financial aid and scholarships. Not as expensive as many other private colleges that I had researched back in high school. Hilbert is actually one of the least expensive private schools in the country.
Amber from New Berlin, NY
I was accepted into other colleges and tuition was crazy expensive. Hilbert's tuiton as of 2013 is $9,650. Now don't think that because tuiton is cheap that Hilbert is not a good school. I talked to a lot of students there and they said it's a greT SCHOOL. I did my research and i found that Hilbert is one of the top schools for Criminal Justice and forensics.
Hilbert College, being a private college can be looked at much more expensive than a state university. But Hilbert College is one of the least expensive private schools in the country, as well as it is one of best schools for Criminal Justice and its upcoming Forensic Science programs. Glad I came here!
Susanne from Attica, NY
Smaller classes and a small campus allows for a more individualized experience. Everyone seems to know each other: faculty and students.
Janine from Springville, NY
Hilbert College is a bit pricey because it is a private school. It is worth it though. Hilbert has brought me many new friends in the past two years I have been here. The advisors make scheduling easy, and the professors are approachable. It may not be the biggest college there is, but it's perfect for any student who wants the college experience.

It is worth paying a little more to receive an education that is going to give you a better chance of getting job placement.
