The first step to admission is to attend an information session. These sessions discuss admission and academic requirements, the application and selection process, and curriculum and career opportunities. Call 410-777-7310 for dates and times or complete our online EMT information session.
Please note: First consideration for selection will be given to candidates whose resident address is in Anne Arundel County for at least three months prior to the application deadline. This is verified by completing the Address Verification for Health Sciences form, which must be completed and submitted to the college Records office as part of the application process. Applicants will receive the Address Verification for Health Sciences form once their application is reviewed. For questions concerning address verification, please call 410-777-2721.
Program Requirements (see each program for specific requirements)
In addition to submitting a completed application by the program deadline, applicants must also have the following:
- Eligibility for ENG 111, 115 or 121
Arithmetic: Students must demonstrate proficiency in arithmetic by achieving a score of 27 or better on the Arithmetic Placement Test by the application deadline.
- All students must take this test.
- Only one retake of the test is allowed.
- Students receiving a score of less than 27 on the retake must enroll in MAT 005 and complete it with a grade of "C" or better by the application deadline. A grade of "C" or higher in MAT 005 will meet the requirement for the Arithmetic Placement Test. If a student took the former Health Professions Arithmetic Placement test prior to June 1, 2009 and scored 19 out of 25 or better, that score will be sufficient.
