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 Guttman, we appreciate the role of supporters in the college application process.  If we could share two tidbits of advice for your students who are considering Guttman as their destination of choice, it would be to apply well in advance of the February 1st deadline and check email frequently.  We look forward to having 600 new students join our college community in Fall 2020!

Application Process

Our admissions process, which requires the completion of three steps, is designed to help your students make a well-informed decision.



Step 1: CUNY Application

Prospective students begin the application process by submitting CUNY’s Application for Freshman Admission. On the application, our curriculum codes are:

Step 2: Information Session

After your student submits a CUNY application, s/he will receive an email invitation to attend an information session where we provide an overview about our educational model. If your student would like to attend a session prior to applying, s/he can register here.

Step 3: Individual Meeting

Once your student attends an information session, s/he will receive an email invitation to register for an individual meeting. This final step provides a personalized opportunity for applicants to talk with a Guttman peer mentor and determine whether our college is the right fit.

Post Acceptance
