Accessibility Resource Center

Resources for Students With Disabilities

The mission of the Accessibility Resource Center (ARC) is to assure that all students have equal access to and equal opportunity in all programs and services offered by Guilford College, and to empower students to become strong self-advocates. Guilford College is proud of its support of students of all abilities and differences. We have a broad array of services that many students find useful, supportive and encouraging.

Professors are also accessible and classes are small, allowing students to build relationships with their teachers and peers. The ARC staff is committed to working with students to address individual needs and providing the necessary accommodations for academic success.

Most Common Accommodations

  • extra time (on in class assignments, in class exams and/or quizzes)
  • testing in a distraction-reduced environment
  • smart pen (LiveScribe) notetaking and recording device
  • adaptive technology software to support reading, writing and study skills (Read&Write Gold by textmark™)

Students are encouraged to talk to their professors early concerning their particular needs.
