Advanced College Credit Program

  • Students who have completed their junior year in high school and high school seniors may apply for the Advanced College Credit Program.
  • The program permits eligible high school students to begin taking courses for college credit at Hilbert during the summer after their junior year in high school. It makes it possible for seniors to shorten the time required to earn a degree by allowing students to take college courses during their senior year.
  • Seniors may elect to take one or two courses at Hilbert while attending their respective high schools.
  • Principals or guidance counselors of the respective high schools must approve students who wish to attend summer or semester sessions.
  • High school students may enroll on a space available basis and must meet the course prerequisites.
  • Students will be charged two-thirds of regular tuition. No application or college fees will be charged.
  • An interview may be required to discuss educational and career plans more thoroughly.

Advanced Placement/Credit by Examination

  • Hilbert recognizes college-level work completed in high school under the Advanced Placement Program of the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB).
  • Student work that receives a rating of 3 to 5 on the advanced placement examination will be considered for college credit and/or advanced placement status.
