Surgical Technology Applicant

How to Apply

Applications for Surgical Technology are accepted after September 1 each year with anticipated enrollment terms of January and May for clinical coursework. Apply online here!

The following must be submitted to the Admissions Office in support of your application:

  • 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 your application for admission has been received.

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, at or 207-974-4679.

Program Prerequisites

To be considered for admission, all prerequisites must be successfully completed prior to file review. Applications for students currently enrolled in prerequisite courses 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) required for admission to EMCC’s 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.
