General Info & Regulations

Financial adjustments should be discussed with Student Accounts and Financial Aid. No refund or credit will be made to any student suspended or expelled from summer school. Please note: visiting students are not eligible for financial aid.

Any student enrolled in summer school who finds it necessary to drop all courses must complete a withdrawal form and submit it at the appropriate office. Traditional first-year students should see Barb Boyette in the First-Year Center and all other traditional students should visit the Office of Campus Life in Founders Hall; CCE students should ask for assistance at the reception desk in New Garden Hall.

Once registered, you are officially enrolled at Guilford and financially responsible for charges. If you decide not to attend classes, you MUST notify one of the appropriate offices in order to withdraw officially. Students who stop attending classes without officially withdrawing will receive F grades in such courses and are financially responsible for the courses. Regular class attendance is required if you are to be successful in summer school.

Honor code regulations must be observed. Willful falsification of College records, the improper use of quotations, plagiarism and unauthorized assistance on tests, papers and other academic assignments are prohibited. The associate academic dean and dean of students will have jurisdiction in all cases involving infractions of rules and regulations.

Campus e-mail is the College’s preferred way of communicating with students. Therefore, all students should check their Guilford College email daily for schedule changes, information about classes and other important announcements.
