Mathematics Competency for Paramedic Program


Students who desire entrance into the paramedic program must demonstrate basic mathematics competency. This can be completed in one of the following two methods:


First, receive a passing grade for any college math class, as demonstrated by the transcript. If we do not have a transcript on the interview/testing day, students are not exempt from this assessment.


Secondly, students can demonstrate mathematics competency by scoring 70% or better on a basic examination. This examination assesses only basic level math skills. Should an applicant score less than 70% and be conditionally admitted to the program, remediation shall be provided by the college and must be completed prior to paramedic program entrance.
