CCMâ€™s Paramedic Science Program utilizes a selective admissions process for the Professional Phase of the program. Selected students are conditionally accepted pending drug screening, health clearance, and criminal background clearance. Students must also provide a current driverâ€™s abstract upon conditional acceptance.
Only the specific courses listed in the ranking area will be used in the A.A.S. Paramedic Science Program Admissions Ranking System. Priority seating will be given to students completing all general education requirements at County College of Morris after being competitively ranked. Students are not eligible for selective admissions ranking if the grade point average (GPA) in the prerequisite coursework is less than 2.5.
Only applications that have been received in their entirety by the application deadline will be considered for ranking. Eligible applicants who are not selected as part of the initial admitted group will be placed on a secondary list of eligible applicants. If a seat becomes available, the next student ranked will be offered the vacancy. Should seats remain available after the selective admissions process, late applications will be processed. Incomplete applications will not be processed.
All non-admitted students must reapply. Applications will not be held.
Official transcripts must be submitted to the Admissions and Records Office prior to Paramedic Science Program application submission. Students are encouraged to submit transcripts as soon as possible, as processing times may vary. Completed courses will not be considered until transfer credits have been articulated.
To be eligible for ranking, students must:
2. Demonstrate college-level competency in English and math by completion or waiver of developmental courses
3. Complete required prerequisites
4. Hold and maintain current NJ EMT and AHA BLS Healthcare Provider (CPR) certifications and valid driverâ€™s license
5. Be a minimum of 18 years of age by the first day of Paramedic Science I (PAR 120)
The Paramedic Science Program utilizes a two-step ranking system:
