Entering first-year students are required to complete New Student Orientation (NSO) prior to beginning the Summer Bridge Program. The mission of NSO is to holistically address students’ transition to college. Therefore, our program is designed to familiarize students with Guttman’s distinct resources and services, introduce them to faculty, staff and student life, review basic policies and procedures, and provide detailed information on our unique Summer Bridge program.

Students who have accepted their offer of admissions will receive an email inviting them to complete new student orientation at your GrizzlyPath.

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.

Official Transcripts and related documents will only be accepted via the Transcript Upload Link. Please do not email or mail transcripts. Instructions and the deadline to submit proof of graduation will be posted at GrizzlyPath.

N.Y.S. Health Law #2165 requires all students entering a post-secondary institution to demonstrate proof of immunization against measles, mumps, and rubella.

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  Bridge Program. Students entering the College in the fall semester will participate in the Bridge program that takes place in August. Students entering the College in the spring semester will participate in the Bridge program that takes place in February.

During Bridge, students are introduced to Guttman’s academic expectations while practicing the strategies and study skills needed to meet them. Participants explore their strengths and challenges as learners, practice academic and professional goal-setting, and gain an understanding of the resources available at the College. Bridge is also an opportunity to virtually meet and work with Guttman faculty, fellow classmates, and staff, such as the advisor – Student Success Advocate – who provides guidance and support throughout the entire First-Year Experience. Overall, the Program is designed for students to become immersed in the Guttman community. Attendance and completion of assignments are mandatory, and students should review the Bridge Program calendar and attendance policy prior to enrolling in the College. Visit the 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.
