The Emergency Medical Technician / Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (EMT/AEMT) program uses a competitive admission process to select students. Program faculty and the Admissions Office staff designed the process to ensure maximum opportunity for student success in the program.
When the number of applicants exceeds the number of seats available in the program, the Admissions selection committee ranks and admits applicants according to their official placement test scores. Students will be admitted based on their score on the ACCUPLACER exam.
Applicants who are on academic probation or are academically dismissed from the college as of the application deadline will not be considered for admission. The Admissions Office staff admits students during Summer Semester with the program start in the Fall. Applicants must submit all required documentation to the Admissions Office by June 15.
All applicants to the EMT/AEMT program must attend one information session before their application will be considered. The schedule for these information sessions can be found at LINK.
Applicants not selected for the program may reapply during subsequent admission intake periods. The college does not maintain a waiting list of people seeking admission to the program. Applicants must submit the following information to the Admissions Office by the application deadline for the semester they are seeking admission to the program:
Applicants must attend a mandatory program orientation session. Failure to attend this session or failure to make alternate arrangements to obtain the necessary information will result in the forfeiture of admission to the program. Prior to the beginning of the program, applicants must have the following current official documents on file with program faculty:
- A signed document acknowledging that the commission of a felony before or during their enrollment in this program may prevent graduates from taking the licensure exam to become emergency medical technicians and that they may be required to complete drug testing and/or background checks at their own expense prior to participating in internships, practicums, or clinical activities at certain host sites for these activities (see Drug Testing/Background Checks). Blank documents are available from the program chair or college website.
- Completed academic honesty form.
- Verification of completion of the online version of New Student Orientation.
