Hillman College was a women's college in Clinton, Mississippi from 1853 until 1942. It was founded under the name of Central Female Institute. It was organized by the Central Baptist Association. Hillman College remained in operation during the entire American Civil War. In 1942 it was purchased by and merged with Mississippi College.

Charles Hillman Brough, the governor of Arkansas from 1917 to 1921, was a faculty member at Hillman College early in his career.

This college should not be confused with the fictional HBCU which provided the setting for the Cosby Show spin-off, A Different World.
