Transfer Support

Transfer Information

At Guttman, students work closely with an academic advisor starting in the Summer Bridge Program straight through to graduation. Academic advisors serve as educational planning, transfer, academic and career success coaches.

After the first year, continuing students work with an academic advisor known as a Career Strategist who helps them progress toward completing their program of study, and transition into a baccalaureate program and/or career. Career Strategists also host program of study-related activities, workshops, and networking events and provide college transfer support to students. Students can see their Career Strategist in their Starfish Success Network.

Transfer Programs & Opportunities

Academic Advising & Student Support offers a number of specialized programs, workshops, and events to provide Guttman students with academic, professional and transfer support. Events hosted by Career Strategist can be one-time programs, workshop series, or yearlong initiatives. Program and event offerings include our:

Transfer Bridge Program
The Transfer Bridge Program is an opportunity for graduating students to network with fellow Guttman Grizzlies who attend the same CUNY college. The Transfer Peer Mentors on the various campuses design and facilitate Transfer Bridge workshops and Alumni Transition Touch Points for Guttman graduates. These workshops/touch points cover tips on navigating academic and administrative matters at the senior college, time management and organizational skills, and getting involved on campus.

Articulation Agreements
