Hilbert College welcomes all veterans, active duty, and dependents of service members! We are honored to support you in achieving your educational goals. Hilbert is a proud participant of the Yellow Ribbon Program and we have been named a Military Friendly School by GI Jobs. We will offer you reasonable transfer of credit, and recognition of your military training. We are approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs to certify VA educational benefits.


Why Hilbert?

Hilbert College is a Franciscan, Catholic, private, four-year College, located approximately ten minutes from Buffalo, New York. The campus offers small class sizes, student clubs, and athletics. The College offers Associate, Bachelor, and Graduate level coursework. Classes are offered in lecture, hybrid and online formats.


We also offer the Hafner Veterans Center located on the second floor of the Campus Center. The Veterans Center offers an area for veterans to relax, study, or reminisce with fellow veterans. Hilbert College recently became a chapter of the Student Veterans of America. This organization provides service members, veterans, and family members with resources and support necessary to succeed in college. The group is dedicated to advocacy on campuses as it relates to polices affecting student veterans and their needs.
