Admitted Students

What's Next?

Now that you've been admitted to Guilford, the fun begins! As you decide which college is the best fit you for, we hope that you'll take some time to learn more about the Guilford experience. Here is a handy checklist for you to reference in the upcoming days, weeks and months.

File the FAFSA

Be sure to submit the online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Guilford's FAFSA code is 002931. 

Get Connected to Guilford

We're online and we're waiting to connect with you! See snapshots of Guilford's campus, get social with our online communities, check out recent news and events and hear from our students.

Visit Campus

Whether Guilford is your first choice or you need a little more time to decide, we invite you to register for an open house or schedule an individual visit to the campus (or come back for a second time) to see what a Guilford education can offer you.

Attend an Admitted Student Reception

Congratulations on your admission to Guilford College! We are thrilled at the possibility of you joining our community. We know how exciting and challenging this time can be, so we want to celebrate you. Throughout the spring, the Offices of Admission and Alumni Relations come together to host Admitted Student Receptions across the country so that you can connect with your future classmates and meet current Guilford students and parents, as well as alumni living in the area. We look forward to seeing you in a city near you!

Guilford's orientation program is designed to introduce you to life at Guilford, answer any questions you might have about your transition to college and to bring up and take care of all of those questions you haven't even considered yet!

You will be introduced to the Guilford family, register for classes, get your ID photo taken, take placement tests and register for housing. During orientation, you will start your transition to academic and co-curricular life at Guilford College. Academic skills sessions, introductions to campus resources, advising and social events will serve to get you ready to begin the academic year and become involved in the Guilford community.

By participating in orientation, on your first day of class you should walk into your classroom with confidence as a part of the Guilford family: seeing familiar faces, comfortable in your interactions with faculty members and prepared for the rigors of college academia.
