Hello Grizzlies,

In light of the growing concerns regarding the spread of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and our desire to keep everyone safe, Guttman Community College’s Office of Financial Aid has transitioned to remote operations at this time.  Our office will not be open for in-person services until further notice.

Office of Financial Aid is still available to assist you!!  For any Financial Aid related questions or concerns, email us at, or you can leave us a voicemail at 646-313-8011 (please make sure to include your full name and EMPLID).  You can expect a response within 2-3 business days.

If you need to submit financial aid documents, you have two options:

  1. You can send the documents via fax to 646-664-3904.
  2. You can email us a request at and we will provide you with a link and a code to upload your documents to a secure portal.

Note – Do not email us documents containing Personally Identifiable Information (such as a social security number); you must use the secure portal.

Please continue to check back for updated information regarding hours of operation.  We thank you for your patience during this time of transition, and stay safe.

Our mission is to ensure that every eligible Guttman student has access to the financial resources they need to attain their college education. A college education is one of the best investments you can make, but the cost can often put a strain on your finances.  Our office is committed to helping students complete the financial aid process and ensure that every eligible Guttman student has access to the financial resources needed to attain a post-secondary education.

We also strive to provide professional services to students to help remove the financial barriers to achieving their academic goals.

Financial Aid counseling is available via Starfish appointments with a Financial Aid representative.
