Guilford reviews applications holistically. In addition to academic achievements and rigor, first-year applicants are encouraged to thoroughly reflect on meaningful activities and extracurricular achievements in order to maximize their institutional scholarship potential. Guilford is also a test-optional institution. First-year students interested applying test-optional are encouraged to visit guilford.edu/admissions/high-school-students/apply for further details. First-year students are defined as those who have not attended a college or university after graduating from high school.
At Guilford, transfer students who enter with an associate’s degree are automatically considered juniors. Students who have graduated high school, attended a college, and have obtained more than 24 credits do not need to submit their high school transcripts or test scores within their application. For more information, visit guilford.edu/admissions/transfer-students.
We encourage you to visit campus so we can introduce you to life as a Guilfordian! You’ll take a tour of campus with a current student and enjoy a casual conversation with your Admission Counselor. If you prefer to join us for an extended visit, attending a program or open house offers more opportunities to engage with the entire College community. No matter when you’re here, you’re sure to fall in love with our stunning academic Quad, our charming, organic College Farm, and our recently renovated residence halls for first-year students.
Launching in 2019, the Guilford Edge is a reimagined educational experience that provides uncommon engagement in real world learning. Guilford’s curriculum is distinguished by team-based, interdisciplinary problem-solving projects, and our integrated advising system ensures every student benefits from a personal team of advisers.
