Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis (no deadline) and candidates usually are
notified of their status within two weeks of completing their application.
A complete application consists of:
--a completed and signed application
--an official copy of high school/college transcripts
--SAT or ACT scores
--a written essay (optional)
--an application fee
Candidates have the option of applying through the Early Action Plan. To be considered for Early Action, candidates must have their completed application to the Admissions Office no later than January 1st. As an accepted student in the early Action Plan you will receive the following benefits:
Early Financial Awards, Scholarship Consideration for Honors Day, Priority
Registration for Fall Classes and Preferential Housing Selections.
There are no binding terms or special fees to the Early Action Plan. It is simply an advantage given to those students who are serious about an education at Greensboro College.
Greensboro College is committed to assisting students and their families in securing the resources necessary to make an education affordable.
More than 85 percent of all Greensboro College students receive some type of financial aid through the use of institutional, federal and state funding in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and employment (work-study). Students may receive financial assistance through merit based aid (based on academic achievements and extracurricular activities), talent-based aid (special scholarships given for music, theater and art) or need based aid (dependent upon a families need for assistance).
Although opportunities for merit and talent-based aid are determined upon acceptance (larger awards may require special interviews or auditions), need-based aid can only be determined when:
--a student applies and has been officially accepted
--the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) has been received
--the Greensboro College Financial Data Sheet has been completed.
Greensboro College prides itself on the academic environment that is created for our students. With over 26 majors to choose from, the decisions are endless. In addition, many of our students will choose to double major and/or minor in a secondary subject just to expand opportunities for themselves upon graduation. Our academic standards have built a solid reputation that will help you after your Greensboro College days, whether you go on to graduate school, or enter a professional job field.
Our classroom size is approximately a 16-1 ratio. All classes are led by professors and
professionals in that particular field of study, each holding an advanced degree or considered one of the best in their chosen profession. Each professor knows your name and will get to know you as a person on an individual basis. You will not be just an ordinary student, but a voice that makes a difference.
Outside of the classroom, our students can take advantage of the multiple opportunities that exist. Involvement in any one of our 40 school clubs and organizations is a choice that you will have. In addition, we offer internships, and international study and honors programs. At Greensboro College the choices are endless when it comes to your education
Our faculty members are first and foremost teachers. They are here to help you whenever, and with whatever you need. If you ever find yourself getting confused, lagging behind, or generally needing assistance, each professor is eager to help. Greensboro College also offers students free, individualized tutoring in every subject through our PEAK services. The PEAK (Power to Expand Academic Knowledge) is our center for academic services. The PEAK offers academic resources, tutoring, learning disabilities support, academic advising, and study skills workshops.
