Transfer Students

If you have previously attended any college or university other than Miami Dade College, you must arrange for that institution to send official transcripts to the Emergency Medical Services Program at the Medical Campus within 30 days of the beginning of the semester of planned enrollment.

For students that transfer credits into the Associate in Science in Emergency Medical Services Degree at Miami Dade College to be eligible for graduation from this program, the following college requirements must be met:

  1. Complete at least 15 of the last 30 credits applied towards the degree at Miami Dade College
  2. Complete a minimum of 24 credits in discipline related courses (courses with EMS prefix) at Miami Dade College for the Associate in Science degree programs.

Students who have attended foreign colleges must submit original transcripts and a certified English translation before February 1st to the Registrar at the Medical Campus for evaluation. For details, please call 305-237-4141. Students who have attended a foreign allied health or nursing program should consult the Miami Dade College catalog for more information about how to have their transcripts, diplomas, and credentials evaluated for U.S. equivalency.

It is highly recommended that applicants which received non-collegial training for Emergency Medical Technician and/or Paramedic contact and meet with an EMS department representative at the Medical Campus.  This meeting should take place prior to beginning enrollment in the Associate Degree in Emergency Medical Services to ensure transferability of the coursework completed for the EMT and Paramedic training.

 

 

 

 

All Medical Campus students must complete the FDLE Waiver and Statement form.This form is to authorize dissemination to Miami Dade College - Medical Campus of any national criminal history record that may pertain to you.

In addition, all program students must complete a "background check" through the identified MDC agent https://ibrinc.com/mdc/select and cleared by the 1st day of class. Depending on your program of study an additional background check may be required. In addition, prior to entry into a clinical site, some clinical sites will require more frequent background checks and clearance.

Successful completion of the MDC level two background check process or completion of a MDC nursing/health sciences program does not guarantee a graduate's eligibility for participation in the professional credentialing process or for related employment. Credentialing agencies and health care employers may have additional eligibility criteria not required by an educational institution. Individuals who have been arrested or convicted of any felony crime during the last 15 years are strongly urged to inquire directly of the licensing board in the jurisdiction in which they intend to practice.
