Paramedic-EMT Program

The Paramedic Program admits students once per year.

We no longer require prerequisite courses for the paramedic program beginning the spring 2024 application cycle.

Applications can be obtained from the Health and Education Division office or online. Selection is based on a computerized random selection process among qualified applicants. Only applicants who meet the education and pre-enrollment requirements and follow the pre-enrollment procedures will be considered for the program. Meeting all these requirements does not guarantee acceptance into the program. Once accepted to the Paramedic Program, students, at their own expense, must provide the following prior to completion of PMED 114

  1. Health History & Report of Medical Examination with required inoculations
  2. Drug screening test
  3. BLS Healthcare Provider from the American Heart Association
  4. Proof of malpractice insurance (malpractice insurance is not refundable)
  5. Background check (required by clinical facilities)
