Honors Program

The Honors Program at Guilford College provides a supportive community for students who are committed to achieving academic excellence and have demonstrated their passion for learning. Through seminars, activities, and one-on-one collaboration with faculty, the program provides students with opportunities to deepen their knowledge and develop their problem-solving skills. Honors Program students come from all majors and disciplines; they are driven by intellectual curiosity and are eager to share their research with others. High-achieving students are invited to apply to this competitive program when admitted to the College and progress through the Honors curriculum across all four years. The program requires students to maintain a high GPA and to complete a senior thesis project in their major(s). Students in the program are also eligible for “senior stipends” to offset research costs or application costs for graduate or post-grad school.
