Our office is committed to helping students complete the financial aid process and get the money they need to attend college.  A college education is one of the best investments you can make, but the cost can often put a strain on your finances. Our mission is to ensure that every eligible Guttman student has access to the financial resources they need to attain their college education. We also strive to provide professional services to students to help remove the financial barriers to their academic goals. Financial need should not prevent you from attending CUNY. Almost 60% of full-time undergraduates attend tuition-free due to Federal Pell Grants and State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) awards that fully cover CUNY’s low tuition. From academics to affordability, CUNY is the best value in higher education. Learn more about the CUNY Value.

Financial Aid counseling is available on an individual walk-in basis, by appointment, and in group workshops conducted throughout the academic year. Our staff provides assistance filing financial aid forms online and monitors student records to ensure that they comply with federal and state requirements. The office is also responsible for administering the Federal Work-Study Program, beginning with a Work-Study Job Fair early in the semester.
