Many factors contribute to the college experience but we know what is important to you
U.S. NEWS RANKINGS
Hilbert College is ranked No. 14 among Regional Colleges in the North for Top Performers on Social Mobility in the U.S. News & World Report’s Best College rankings. Hilbert also ranks No. 40 among Best Regional Colleges in the North according to the publication’s rankings.
Ranking among the Top 15 for Top Performers in Social Mobility aligns with Hilbert’s mission and vision as a Catholic, Franciscan college providing access for a diverse student population, including a large percentage of first-generation students. The ranking measures how well schools graduated students who received federal Pell Grants. The social mobility ranking was computed by aggregating the two ranking factors assessing graduation rates of Pell-awarded students.

Cassidy '19 talks about how Hilbert helped harness her passion for service to others.
Hilbert College has crafted a plan promoting a four-year college experience that will bolster student involvement and leadership potential –The Hilbert Blueprint.
The Hilbert Blueprint promotes a well-rounded student experience over four years. The ‘blueprint’ begins with the Foundations Seminar – a key piece to the First-Year Experience, followed by Sophomore Service, Junior Symposium, and concludes with the Senior Capstone.
The Blueprint, particularly the First-Year Experience, has led to a dramatic rise in Hilbert's retention rate.
More than 90% of the Class of 2018 were employed or continuing their education within 6 months of graduation.
Our NCAA Division III athletics program boasts an 88% retention rate.
Hilbert student-athletes boast 16 consecutive semesters of a 3.0 GPA.
