Academic Support

Successful students take advantage of all the academic resources at their disposal. And Guilford has a lot!

Academic advising at Guilford is far more than those two words suggest. We take to heart our responsibility to guide you through your academic choices as well as your life choices. Advisers assist you in choosing courses and independent studies, obtaining internships, planning for study abroad and preparing for life after graduation.

As a first-year student, a great place to start is your academic adviser. During your first year at Guilford, your adviser is your First Year Seminar instructor. The First Year Experience is designed to get students off to a strong start at Guilford, and it covers everything from how to pay bills, to where to work out, to potential majors.
