The Paramedic tuition identified above only apply to the professional courses within the program (i.e. all EMS - ### courses for the Paramedic Certificate Program). Any student who elects to take additional classes that are not required to earn the Paramedic Certificate will incur additional tuition charges equal to the number of additional credit hours taken multiplied by the part-time per-credit-hour rate. The combined program tuition and additional-class tuition in each term will not exceed the current full-time tuition amount for that term.

The Paramedic tuition will be billed in two equal amounts for two-term offerings and three equal amounts for three-term offerings. Each installment payment is due on or before the first day of each respective term. Tuition is considered fully earned by the College as specified in the Tuition Adjustment Policies Section of the Mercy College of Health Sciences, College Catalog. If a student drops or withdrawals and financial aid must be returned to the government, the student is personally responsible for the full amount of the resulting unpaid tuition.

Emergency Medical Services Courses

Full Payment for EMT and CCP certificate courses is due at the time of registration and is non-refundable after the first day of class.  Deferred payment plans are not offered by the College for these certificate programs.  Students are not considered registered until Full Payment is received.  If a student is unable to attend any class, the student has a duty to contact the instructor prior to the class to discuss the matter.  If a student fails to attend the first class and has not contacted the instructor prior to the class to obtain permission, the student will be administratively dropped from the class by the College and the amount paid by the student will be refunded.

Students may elect to enroll in the EMT certificate course and receive college credit. The election to take the course for college credit must be made by the student at the time of registration. Once class has started this choice is irrevocable.  If a student elects to enroll in the EMT certificate course for credit, all for-credit policies, including tuition and fee amounts will apply.

Tuition for EMT and CCP certificate courses is non-refundable after the first day of class. Therefore a student who wishes to drop a these courses and receive a tuition adjustment must submit all completed paperwork to the Registrar on or before the first day of class.
