Personalized Visits Postponed

Guilford College continues to diligently monitor, plan, and respond to rapidly evolving events with COVID-19 and the counsel of the Centers for Disease Control, as well as the directives of local, state, and national government officials. Our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of everyone in our campus community, as well as all honored guests who visit Guilford College.

As of March 30, 2020, North Carolina is under a quarantine as directed by the Governor’s Office and all visits are canceled. We would love to have you on campus in late spring once the state quarantine is lifted.

In the meantime, the offices of Admission and Financial Aid will continue to offer personalized phone calls to students. Contact us any time at 336.316.2100 to speak with your admission counselor, or email to be connected with them over email.

We will also be reaching out to you in many other ways in the days and weeks ahead to answer all of your questions and keep you engaged in the life of Guilford College, as we eagerly anticipate you joining our outstanding community of learners in the near future.

If we can help you in any way, please reach out to us at or Until we have the chance to see you on campus, please be safe and well.
