High School and Independent Counselors


The Office of Admission is thankful to college and guidance counselors across the country who recommend Guilford College to their students. Guilford's Admission Counselors value their relationships with each of you, and we're honored that you support us in identifying future students. Thank you for your continued interest and support!

"Guilford College is committed to providing an accessible application process for all of our prospective students," says Admission Director Kyle Wooden '11. "We've been a test-optional institution for 20-plus years and have pledged to accept unofficial transcripts for our application review process. We want to make the process as easy as possible for you, the counselors, as well. Please continue to contact us with any questions as we work together to serve students."

The Guilford Commitment

A Promise to Your Students


Guilford College is committed to giving every first-time, undergraduate applicant generous institutional aid. Offers start at $15,000 per year and go up to $27,000 per year or more, depending on their academic success. Do you have a student who would greatly benefit because of their focus and determination? Introduce them to Guilford College so they can see how much support they'll receive.

Counselors are available to meet one on one with you or your students, or they can do a group presentation.
