Students who have committed to enrolling at Guttman Community College are required to present proof of high school graduation prior to the first day of the fall semester. Failure to submit an official high school transcript with graduation date by the deadline will result in cancelation of your enrollment.

N.Y.S. Health Law #2165 requires all students entering a post-secondary institution to demonstrate proof of immunization against measles, mumps, and rubella. This law applies to students born on or after January 1, 1957, who are registered for 6 or more credits at a CUNY campus. Please complete the Immunization Form and submit using the Immunization Upload Link. Immunization records will not be accepted by email or mail.

New York State Public Health Law #2167 requires all post-secondary institutions to provide information on Meningitis and the Meningitis vaccine. All students (regardless of age) must complete a form indicating that they received and read the information. Vaccination is NOT mandated; however, completion of the Meningitis Response  Form is required.

For additional information, view the Immunization Handbook for New York State Post-secondary Institutions.

All first-year students begin their transition to Guttman Community College in a non-credit bearing Summer Bridge Program. The program will be held remotely from August 26-September 4 and will be accessed via Blackboard.

The program provides an opportunity for students to become acquainted with the college’s educational model and begin to meet their peers and members of the college community before fall classes begin. During this program, students sample many of the classes they will take in the fall, get to know their academic advisor and peer mentors, begin to develop an ePortfolio, and continue to explore the Guttman campus and community.

Attendance and completion of assignments are mandatory, and students should review the Summer Bridge Program calendar and attendance policy prior to enrolling in the college. Visit the Summer Bridge website for more details.

As a reminder, you can track your progress on your GrizzlyPath. As you satisfy requirements, your checklist will be updated.
