The Continuing Education Student Government Association serves the specific interests of adult students like you. The organization also brings the evening class community together by sponsoring exciting social and cultural events.
92 percent of Guilford professors hold a terminal degree in their field of expertise.
That's how many credits Guilford's welcoming policy may accept when you transfer from a two-year college — it's also the percentage of transfer students in the Continuing Education program. You can also earn up to 16 credits from your military experience.

You must have a minimum of 128 total credits, complete at least one major and one minor, and meet all of Guilford's general education requirements to earn a degree. Guilford has a very generous transfer policy, but be aware that at least 32 credits must be taken through Guilford and must include half of the credits for your major and half of the credits for your minor.

You're always welcome to attend sporting events and show your school spirit by rooting for the Quakers!
