**All college transcripts must be official. If you have previously submitted official transcripts to the Records office, you do not have to re-submit with your application. If you are not sure if you have official transcripts on file, contact the Records Office at 410-386-8440. You DO NOT have to request official transcripts from Carroll Community College for courses taken here.

Applicants must:

  • Complete pre-clinical requirements. Pre-clinical coursework must have a minimum grade of C.

Additional Admission Information:

  • All Paramedic students and faculty must be fully vaccinated against COVID prior to beginning the program. There are no exceptions, religious or medical. All must stay current with any required booster immunizations during the time they are in an allied health program. This is a clinical facility mandate.
  • Once accepted, all students will need to complete a criminal background check and a urine drug screening. Further information will be provided at that time. Students must be able to provide their own transportation to all clinical sites.
  • Transfer courses with grades will be included and will be assigned quality points based on the letter grade.
