Guttman Community College disburses both Federal and New York State financial aid to all eligible students. If you want financial aid, you must take the first step and submit an application–even if you think you might not be eligible.
At Guttman we are ready to answer all your questions about how to apply for Financial Aid and to guide you through the entire application process.
There are THREE EASY STEPS to applying for financial aid:
Step #1: Fill out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
- The FAFSA form is available online here.
- Submit your FAFSA starting on October 1 of the year prior you anticipate enrolling at Guttman.
- Follow the instructions and first apply for an FSA ID. If you are including your parent(s) income, they will also need to apply for an FSA ID.
- Add Guttman’s Federal school code 042101 on your FAFSA when applying.
About one week after submitting your FAFSA, you should receive an email confirmation with a link to your Student Aid Report (SAR) from the U.S. Department of Education. The SAR is an online document acknowledging the processing of your FAFSA. Be sure to review the document for accuracy.
