Supporters’ Corner

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 450 new students join our college community in Fall 2018!

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

Following your student’s acceptance to Guttman Community College, s/he must fulfill certain requirements in the period leading up to the first day of the academic semester. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Office of Admissions and Access.
