**A selective admission process is utilized for the Accelerated Paramedic Program.
Students who have previously completed a program of study for Paramedic licensure, as evidenced by presentation of a National Registry of EMT’s Paramedic License, can obtain the AAS in Paramedic Technology from East Central College. Students should present the license for approval before Paramedic credits will be applied.
Option 1: Transfer Paramedic course credits from a Regionally Accredited College or University, along with the National Registry of EMT’s Paramedic license.
Option 2: Provide National Registry of EMT’s Paramedic license (obtained from a NON-regionally accredited agency) and complete the transcription process to have those credits applied to their transcript.
BOTH OPTIONS require the student to complete the general education courses and meet all graduation requirements for the East Central College before being allowed to graduate.
