“I had the chance to go to school after I was laid off from Dexter Shoe. I surprised myself by how well I adapted to classroom learning after 20 years out of school. I’ve made the Dean’s List and will graduate in May. I’m proof it can be done!”
Surgical Technology Applicant
Applications for the fall 2022 Surgical Technology program are accepted September 1, 2021, through February 1, 2022.
All supporting documentation (transcripts and questionnaire answers) must be received by the Admissions Office before March 1, 2022.
How to Apply
Apply online here between the dates listed above! Current EMCC students applying to change their major to Surgical Technology can use the abbreviated Change of Major Application (aka “Snap-App”).
The following must be submitted to the Admissions Office prior to March 1, 2022:
- All previous educational transcripts (high school, adult education, and college).
Regardless of whether transfer credit is being sought, applicants must disclose all prior colleges attended. Failure to furnish all information on past education may constitute adequate reason for disqualification of your acceptance or subsequent dismissal from the College as well as possible retraction or denial of financial aid funds.
- Complete Surgical Technology Questionnaire Form. This form will be emailed to you as an electronic fillable document once you have submitted an application for admission.
All applicants to Surgical Technology who are offered admission to the program will be required to submit to a national criminal background screening process at their expense within 30 days of acceptance. For more complete details regarding this requirement please see Criminal Background Screening. If after reading this information you have any questions or concerns, please contact Stacy Green, Director of Admissions, at email@example.com or 207-974-4679.
To be considered for admission for fall 2022, all prerequisites must be successfully completed prior to March 1. Applications for students currently enrolled in prerequisite courses during the fall semester will not be reviewed for admission until a final grade is received. (Updated transcripts for courses taken at institutions other than EMCC are required upon course completion in this case.) The prerequisites (high school equivalent unless otherwise noted) required for admission to EMCC’s 2022 Surgical Technology program are:
- Algebra I
- EITHER Biology with Lab or Chemistry with Lab
*It is the responsibility of the applicant to have the final grades from prerequisite courses taken through adult education or at another college mailed to the Admissions Office. (In determining whether an application is “complete” and ready to be reviewed by the Admissions Committee, adult education transcripts are not considered if admission personnel are not aware that you are currently enrolled in these courses.) Applicants are strongly encouraged to follow up and ensure that all materials have arrived for your file. Additionally, if you are currently enrolled in prerequisite courses and/or Nursing general education courses, make sure the Admissions Committee is aware of the course name, location, and anticipated completion date.
