Robeson Community College health science faculty will review the achievement potential of each
applicant. During the candidate review process, faculty will examine previous academic records and
pre-entrance examination scores to determine congruence with curriculum academic demands and
program expectations.
Applicants will be offered provisional acceptance based on fulfillment of all admission
requirements/criteria by the specified deadline. Applicants provisionally accepted into the EMS
program will be required to attend a Provisional Acceptance Meeting in June. This meeting will be
hosted by program faculty and staff and is designed to provide applicants with additional program
requirements.
Prior to receiving final approval and/or enrolling in the first Emergency Medical Science course, all
Applicants Provisionally accepted MUST complete and/or provide documentation of the following:
1. Medical Review/Screen, which includes but not limited to:
a. (2) separate PPDs: Proof of Negative Tuberculin (Tb) skin testing or follow-up chest X-
ray within 3 months of enrollment.
b. Immunizations
Tdap, Hepatitis B series, MMRX2, Rubella, Varicella series or positive titer
(required), and Influenza is required by clinical affiliates.

scheduled by the College once students have been provisionally accepted.
NOTE: (1) If results of a criminal background check and panel urine drug screen prevents a
student from participating in a clinical rotation or field experience at any agency/medical center,
then the student will not be able to fulfill the clinical requirements for the program, and
subsequently will not be allowed to complete the EMS program. (2) Fees associated with the
criminal background check and drug screen will be the responsibility of the student.
