What Makes Hillsdale Different?

We believe the study of the past provides a valuable window into the future. A Hillsdale education, however, is more than the study of what is good, true, and beautiful; it is in the practice of these things that our education comes to life.

Affording Hillsdale

Hillsdale’s cost is significantly less than that of other nationally-ranked, private liberal arts colleges. We’re proud to be considered a great value. We also know college remains a significant investment for most families. In fact, almost all of our students receive some form of aid, including scholarships, grants, loans, and student employment. The average aid package awarded in 2015 was $16,700, with $14,300 in gift aid.
