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 on an individual walk-in basis, by appointment, and in group workshops conducted throughout the academic year. Our staff provides assistance with completing financial aid forms online and monitoring student records to ensure compliance with federal and state requirements.
