Tuition and Acceptance Rate
- On March 3, 1962, through the efforts of the media, local civic groups, and many others, a bond issue was passed for the purpose of building a new campus. The college opened for business in September of 1962 under a new name, Hill Junior College. The new college district was expanded by the voluntary annexation of five Hill County school districts other than the original Hillsboro school district. The district now included Hillsboro, Abbott, Bynum, Covington, Itasca, and Whitney. In 1974, the college opened an extension center in Cleburne, Texas, located in Johnson County. The Johnson County Campus now includes six buildings on 32 acres of land and has more than 1,000 students enrolled in both day and night classes. In 1997 and 1998, the citizens of Alvarado, Cleburne, Godley, Grandview, Joshua, Keene, Rio Vista, and Venus approved a local maintenance and operation tax for the purpose of supporting the campus of Hill College in Johnson County. The college dropped 'junior' from its name in 1985 and became Hill College. The college campuses are located at Hillsboro, Cleburne, Glen Rose, Clifton, and a Virtual Campus accessible anywhere. Hill College campus area includes 73.8 acres of land located just east of the City of Hillsboro on a hill overlooking I 35 and the 35 acre Hill College Reunion Grounds. Following its relocation to this site in 1962, the student population has continued to grow, and the college has expanded its facilities in order to meet the needs of the community and its students. Twenty permanent buildings have been erected on the main campus with over 250,000 square feet of space. Hill College offers the Associate in Arts Degree, the Associate in Applied Science Degree, Certificate of Technology, and Certificate of Completion. Hill College is accredited by the commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate degrees.
