Adult Programs


The Center for Continuing Education

Since 1953, Guilford College has provided transformative educational opportunities for adult students seeking to improve their lives through the pursuit of a bachelor’s degree or certificate of study. With the Triad’s largest number of adult degree programs in North Carolina, Guilford College provides its students with the resources and support they need to succeed in school while continuing their careers and family life. Small class sizes, a supportive faculty and staff, flexible academic schedules and a variety of services tailored specifically to working adults and parents help make this possible.

Degree & Certificate of Study Programs

Our continuing education program in North Carolina has Certificate of Study options designed for students seeking an organized and well-planned learning experience but do not wish to embark upon a complete bachelor’s degree program. It also appeals to people who have an undergraduate degree in one area and seek to develop and document serious study in one or more additional areas of expertise without pursuing a graduate degree or a second bachelor’s degree.

Upcoming Info Sessions & Campus Visits

Guilford College offers many opportunities to explore the campus and curriculum.

If you are considering undergraduate study to complete a Bachelor’s degree, you are invited to come to one of our Open Houses. Each Open House will include one-on-one chats with admission counselors. Information regarding the distinctive academic programs, the personalized learning environment and special services for adult students at our Greensboro, NC continuing education college will be shared. No appointment is required and the atmosphere is informal with ample opportunity for questions.

Transfer students are encouraged to attend Transfer Tuesday, an informative session at our North Carolina CCE where prospective students may drop in with transcripts at any time. No reservation is required.
