Please call the Testing Department at 305-237-4375 for a testing schedule or contact any of the Testing Departments at any of the MDC campuses for their testing schedule.

Applicants must have a high school diploma or G.E.D. Students who have earned an A.A., A.S., or higher degree or have acceptable scores from the SAT or ACT-I are exempt from the C.P.T. Test.

For the First Responder courses, the acceptable scores that are required are:

READING - 51 or higher

ENGLISH - 51 or higher

ALGEBRA - 30 or higher
















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 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.
