The Power of a Guilford Education

Guilford College offers a transformational and practical liberal arts education anchored by our seven Core Values. Our small class sizes and caring faculty provide your student with the hands-on learning experiences and critical problem-solving skills to thrive and make a positive difference in the world.

Your student will bond with professors, work in teams on cutting-edge research, and explore their interests in life-altering internships. Guilford's curriculum will also enhance their writing, problem-solving, and communication skills. They'll be ready for wherever their passions take them — be it launching a career, starting a business, or continuing their studies at the graduate level.

Where will Guilford take your student?

Look no further than Guilford's alumni. They can be found at Google and Microsoft; starting companies and nonprofit organizations; serving with international aid organizations; and excelling at renowned institutions including Harvard, Johns Hopkins, and the University of Virginia, among many others.

We've created the guide below with information and resources to help you and your student navigate the college process. Stay informed by signing up for Guilford updates, and if you have questions, reach out any time to your child's Admission Counselor or the Office of Admission at 336.316.2100 or

The Guilford College Commitment

A Promise to Your Student

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 a student's academic success. Yes — Guilford promises every new student at least $15,000 a year in financial aid — and even more if they show us they're a leader and an achiever.
