Welcome to Hilbert College!

We look forward to seeing you at Orientation and building a strong relationship with you as you become part of the Hilbert College community. At Orientation you will learn your way around campus, spend time with other incoming students, and learn all about how to be successful as a Hilbert College student. Orientation is required for all students. 


Dates

Our mandatory summer Orientation program for all incoming undergraduate first year and transfer students will take place Friday, August 3 and Friday, August 24.  Students may register for either date online here. Check-in begins at 8:00am for both dates.

Adult students are invited to attend a special Adult Student Orientation on Thursday, August 23.  This session is designed with the adult student in mind and will take place starting at 5:00pm.
