The number one mistake you can make is never trying. If you have met the stated requirements for a program you should submit an application. You will never be penalized for applying to many times to a program. Some years our programs are highly competitive, while in other years we accept a significant portion of our applicants. In any case, you are best served by applying when you have completed your prerequisites.
We generally have students come to our office who merely want to check to see that they have all their ducks in a row. While we encourage students to come a semester in advance to do this, there are some last minute items students forget or overlook. We hope this presentation clears up any confusion.

EMS Fall registration is about to begin. EMS students seeking to advance onto intermediate and paramedic levels, will vie for the few open slots in their programs. It is a pure sprint to the finish line and the only way to enter the race is by being program placed before May 3rd. Fall registration begins May 3rd at 00:01HRS, 12:01am . Classes will fill quickly, and new sections will not be added.
In order for an EMS student to be program placed they must submit an EMS Education Worksheet. They must also meet all requirements. In order to guarantee their program placement happens in time, students will need to submit their worksheet by April 24th. This allows our office a seven business day turnaround time to process the form.

EMS Fall Registration opens May 3rd at 12:01am (00:01)
EMS Education worksheets should be submitted by April 24th to guarantee they will be processed in time.
After April 24th, we cannot guarantee program placement by May 3rd ( not to mean it won’t happen, just not likely by May 3rd)
