  • Background Information Disclosure and Criminal History Check (CHC)

    You must complete a Background Information Disclosure and Criminal History Check (CHC) prior to placement in the field.

Under no circumstances are Paramedic program students assigned to the clinical area until all requirements are met. More information will be provided in your acceptance packet.

  • Paramedic Program Orientation

    Orientation is mandatory. You will be dropped from the program if you do not attend the Paramedic Orientation session.

  • Apply for Financial Assistance

    Due to the nature of the schedule, some portions of the Paramedic program may not be eligible for financial aid or veterans’ benefits.

    • Financial aid
    • Scholarships
    • Veterans benefits

    Tuition is due each semester by the tuition due date. You may also find it helpful to start familiarizing yourself with the college's refund policy and available payment options.

    Credit classes are billed electronically through your Student Center. Paper bills are not mailed.
