How to Apply

Please note: All upcoming in-person admissions process related events are cancelled.  We want to reassure you that Guttman Community College has reviewed the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as it relates to the appropriate recommendations for minimizing the spread of the virus.  To address the rapidly evolving nature of COVID-19 and to preserve the integrity and intentionality of our admissions process, applicants will still be required to complete the mandatory steps.  Moving forward the admissions process will only be offered ONLINE.   Admissions advisors will accommodate any reasonable requests to meet with students.

Starting Monday 3/16/2020, active applicants will receive email communication and be directed to their GrizzlyPath, where students can track their progress and offered the opportunity to complete required steps designed to help them make a well-informed decision.  Upon completion of the CUNY application and satisfying the group information session and individual meeting requirements, applicants will receive an acceptance letter via their GrizzlyPath and be able to submit an online commitment form.

At this time, we are unable to consider applicants who:

  • require an F-1 or J-1 visa to study in the United States
  • are interested in taking courses on a part-time basis or a non-degree status
  • are transfer students

CUNY considers a transfer student as someone who has attended any college, university and/or proprietary school since graduating from high school/secondary school. This applies whether or not you are seeking transfer credit and/or changing a program of study.

If you fall into one of the above categories, we encourage you to explore other options in The City University of New York.

Thinking of returning to Guttman Community College? Great! We believe in your success and are ready provide support during your time at Guttman.


Students who have been matriculated at Guttman Community College but left without graduating are eligible for readmission. The first step of readmission is completing the Readmission Interest Form. After completion, a representative from the advisement team will review your records and will be in contact with you regarding the next steps and the Readmission Application. Students returning after an academic probation and/or dismissal, will have to submit an appeal letter along with their Readmission Application and will be reviewed by the Committee on Academic Affairs. Students in good academic standing will only have to submit the Readmission Application. All students approved of readmission will be required to attend a Readmission Orientation.


Students interested in readmitting to Guttman Community College must apply before 2 weeks before the first day of classes for the requested readmit term (Fall or Spring). Please check the academic calendar for dates.
