HAMBURG, N.Y. – Hilbert College has announced that it will not increase its tuition and fees for the 2014-15 academic year. Hilbert’s tuition and fees will remain flat across all areas - undergraduate, graduate and accelerated degree programs. Hilbert has consistently been one of the lowest-priced four-year, private institutions in all of New York State, while providing students with the individual attention and support they need to be successful. 

In addition to keeping tuition and fees flat, Hilbert will also increase its financial aid budget for the 2014-15 academic year. The increase will provide support for nearly $500,000 in additional scholarship aid to Hilbert students. Room and board will have small increases for the next academic year. Overall, room and board together will increase approximately 2.7%. Hilbert remains one of the few colleges in western New York to offer room and board under $9,000.  

“At Hilbert, we are constantly striving to make every effort to keep college education affordable for our students,” Hilbert President Cynthia Zane said.   “We are pleased that our Board of Trustees has approved this proposal to keep our tuition and fees flat for the next academic year. It is a testament to our institution’s focus on keeping costs down, while improving completion and student success rates, and offering life-changing educational opportunities.”
