Our mission is to assure that all students have equal access to programs and services offered by Guilford College. We are passionate about creating an accessible living and learning environment for students of all abilities and we provide a broad array of services to support students with accessibility needs. We are here to empower students to become strong self-advocates, and we aim to work closely with the community to identify and remove barriers. We do this work out of a passion for equity and social justice, in accordance with Guilford's core values, and in compliance with the ADA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.

The ARC provides referrals and accommodations for students with disabilities that impair major life functioning, or limit the student's ability to live and learn. Here are some common conditions that Guilford students receive services for:

  • Visual and Hearing Impairments

  • Chronic Illness

  • Physical Disability

  • Cognitive or Intellectual Disability

  • Learning Disability

  • Mental, Psychological, or Emotional Conditions

  • illness or injury

Sometimes students aren't aware that they may qualify for, and benefit from, accommodations. These may include: migraine, allergies, learning disabilities, illness, injury (concussion, car accident, etc.), surgery, compromised immune system, sleep apnea or insomnia, and pregnancy complications.
