No matter what your academic pursuits are, Hickey College offers a way to get there. A small, private college that offers diplomas, associate’s degrees, and bachelor’s degrees; there is a track for just about any student’s needs. Due to its small size, students are able to experience a great deal of one-on-one interaction with faculty, adding a lot to the educational experience. The focus of both students and the school itself is being ready and able to find a job immediately after graduation, making it a popular college choice for those who are in need of advanced skills to enter a new field of work, as well as those who are interested in going straight to work after college instead of pursuing other forms of post-secondary education. 98% of students go on to a career after they finish with school.

The most popular areas of study are in technology, business, and healthcare. The school also offers degrees and certificates in Culinary Arts and Graphic Design, but most students are in the Paralegal Studies, Legal Administration, Computer Specialist, Computer Programming, and Veterinary Technician degree or certificate programs.

Students attending for an associate’s degrees often finish in less than two years, and those striving towards a bachelor degree usually take day and night courses concurrently.

Most Popular Fields of Study


Many different types of students apply to Hickey College, from those who are attending college for the first time to those who have decided to pursue a new career or course of training and need the educational and technical skills that only a trip back to school can teach them.

The actual application process is fairly simple and easy to complete. Applications should be in at least six months before the semester students would like to start school, with a majority of students opting to begin in the fall semester rather than in the springtime. The official application can be picked up from the Admissions Office or downloaded from the school’s website, and should be filled out to completion. The FAFSA application and corresponding material should be sent with the application so that there is not a delay in receiving financial aid.

First-time college freshmen need to submit their completed application along with a copy of their high school diploma or GED and their official high school transcript. If the ACT or SAT has been taken, students should also include the official test scores along with the application. Continuing education or nontraditional students who are applying should include any record of previous college classwork or degrees, including a transcript, even if it is not applicable for their current course of study.

Financial Aid

Most of the students attending receive some form of financial aid, whether it is need-based or merit-based. The school’s financial aid office recommends filling out the FAFSA as soon as possible, so that any delays in processing one’s need for financial aid are taken care of long before the start of the semester. Students most commonly pay for school by receiving state or federal based financial aid, applying for grants such as the Pell Grant, or taking out student loans, like the Stafford Loan.

Students who are feeling a bit confused and overwhelmed by the process of applying for financial aid are encouraged to set up meetings with counselors in the financial aid office. Weekdays from nine until five, counselors can assist students with the completion of applications for financial aid, as well as help to proofread any essays that are required for merit-based scholarships. Counselors also keep track of a list of both need-based and merit-based community scholarships that students might also take advantage of.

Secrets to getting the best scholarships and financial aid in Missouri.


Most students are from the St. Louis area, resulting in over half the student population living off-campus. For those who do live on campus, the residence halls are up to date and state of the art. All students can use the cafeteria, library, and other facilities. Students can also participate in extracurricular activities, including the school newspaper, student government, and a variety of different clubs from music to math. Most students are on a fast track to get their degree, but this doesn’t mean that there are not special activities worth pursing while attending school.
