EMS Program Courses

Courses offered by the EMS department require general admission to Oregon Tech with one exception: the second year of the paramedic program. Due to the large number of applications and relatively limited number of student positions, the second year of the paramedic degree requires a separate admissions process.  

New and transfer students interested in taking their first year prerequisites with Oregon Tech, including Human Anatomy & Physiology, Intro to EMS  and the EMT courses should follow the online application instructions for general admission.  Students interested in the upper level bachelor degree coursework should also follow these instructions.

  • Pay the $50.00 non-refundable application fee at the end of the online application.
