During your time at Guttman Community College, you will be required to pay certain student fees. Take a look at the breakdown below to see which apply to you and avoid being charged unnecessarily.

Application fee: $65
This is CUNY’s one-time, non-refundable fee required for your application as a first-year student with Guttman Community College.

Consolidated services fee: $15 per Semester
This fee, charged every semester, covers the external processing of financial aid applications, the Immunization Program, the Job Location/Development Program, system wide tuition and fee collections, and the administration of various tests such as the skills assessment tests.

Student activity fee: $55 per semester for full-time students; $20 for part-time students

This fee covers the student government and other student activities. It is nonrefundable unless you withdraw from the college before the first day of the semester. If the college cancels a course that causes you to fall below full time, you would be entitled a refund of the difference between the fees for full- and part-time students. Claims for refunds must be made in the same semester.

University Student Senate fee: $1.45
The University Student Government fee is separate from the college student government fee. It helps cover the operation of CUNY’s University Student Senate.

Technology fee: $125 per semester for full-time students; $62.50 for part-time students
Each semester, you will be charged a $125 technology fee if you are enrolled full time and $62.50 if you are enrolled part time. While the technology fee is generally nonrefundable, a partial refund is available in special circumstances, such as the college canceling a course and you becoming a part-time student as a result. It is also refundable if you withdraw from the college before the first day of the semester. You must file a claim for a refund during the same semester. If you register as a part-time student but later become full time, you must pay the difference in the fee. If you drop or withdraw from a course after the first day of classes and thus become a part-time student, you are not entitled to a refund.

Material fees: $35
You might be charged for materials in courses where you will own the end product of the work made with them. These fees must be approved every two years by the CUNY Board of Trustees, or if the fee changes, whichever happens first. The college course catalogue must clearly state the nature and amount of a charge associated with a given course.

Returned check processing fee: $15
If you bounce a check, you will be charged $15, plus any penalty that the bank imposes on the college. If a check is returned because of a bank error and the bank acknowledges the mistake in writing, the fee will be waived.

Late payment fee: $15

  • If you are late paying your tuition or any other fees, you will be charged $15 for each missed due date. Section 18 of the State Finance Law requires students to pay late fees on outstanding tuition and fees that are not paid within 30 days of receipt of a billing notice or invoice therefore. Late fees may include, without limitation, set fees or statutory interest.
  • Some students use outside servicing agents to administer tuition payment plans. If such servicing agents charge fees to students who are late with payments to such providers, those fees may be separate and different than CUNY’s late payment fees.
  • The University may require a student to pay all outstanding tuition and fee amounts, plus applicable late charges, as a condition to reinstatement of the student, and such amounts will be in addition to any readmission fee due.

Make-up final exam fee: $25; $5 thereafter
If you miss a final exam, you will be charged $25 to take a make-up test. Each additional make-up final exam you need to take that semester will cost $5.

Duplicate document processing charges

  • Diploma: $30 for each duplicate diploma
  • I.D. /library card replacement: $5; does not include the CUNY Card
  • CUNY Card replacement: $10. This fee is higher than the usual lost card fee because the CUNY Card has many multifunctional features requiring replacement as quickly as possible by the college so that you do not lose any services.
  • Bursar receipt/bill or other college record: $5. This fee covers the administrative costs for issuing a duplicate bursar’s receipt/bill, class confirmation or other college record. When you request copies of your records under the Federal Privacy Act, you will be charged 25 cents per page for each uncertified copy.

Transcript fee: $7 per transcript for any institution outside of CUNY

  • Every time a student or an alumni requests a transcript, the student or alumni will be charged $7.00 per transcript.
  • There is no need for a student or an alumni to request a transcript for another CUNY school.
