We appreciate your interest in the Emergency Medical Technology program at CCBC and want to make certain that you are successful.

CAS Checklist for Emergency Medical Technology

Step 1 - Prepare to Apply

Review the Admission Packet for this program.
  • If you are interested in taking EMST 105. Do not proceed here. EMST 105 is an open registration course. You may register online or with the registrar’s office.

Collect pertinent materials like unofficial transcripts for all US college-level coursework and testing completed. Use these to help you complete the application.

CLEP, AP and non-US college transcript evaluations (AACRAO, WES etc.) should be sent directly to CCBC’s School of Health Professions (SHP) Admission Office.

Ask professors, mentors, co-workers or employers to be your reference. Collect their email address for submission in the CCBC CAS.

Write a personal statement.

Step 2 - Complete CCBC CAS Application

If you have never before applied through the CAS system, then create an account in CCBC CAS through the applicant portal and follow the directions to complete the applications.

Once all sections of the application have a green check mark, you will be able to pay the $50 non-refundable application fee. It is better to submit the application at least a month before the application deadline.

Step 3 - Official Transcripts

Submit your official U.S. college transcripts to CCBC CAS using the Transcript Request Form. The Transcript Request Form is found in the Academic History section after you have added and saved all of the colleges you attended. Have your college send the official transcripts (this includes any CCBC transcripts) and the form to CCBC CAS at:

CCBC CAS Transcript Processing Center
P.O. Box 9134
Watertown, MA 02471


CLEP, AP, and non-U.S. college transcript evaluations should not be sent to the CCBC CAS. Instead, send them to CCBC’s School of Health Professions (SHP) Admission Office. It can take 4 weeks for any transcript to be received and verified. Check your CCBC CAS account frequently and follow up with the processing center as necessary. It is better to send transcripts sooner rather than later.
