To transfer credits from a previously-attended institution, with an international evaluation, or from the military to Central Piedmont, have an official copy of all transcripts sent to the Central Piedmont Student Records office. Central Piedmont accepts official transcripts sent electronically, by mail, or brought in person.  Transcripts that are mailed in or brought in person will only be accepted if they are sealed; once a transcript is opened, it is no longer official.



For most high schools and colleges, you can do an online search for the name of the school and the word “transcripts” to access a form to have your transcripts sent electronically. When the form asks for the institution to send the transcripts to, select Central Piedmont Community College.



There is no charge for a college transcript evaluation at Central Piedmont, but international transcript evaluators do charge to translate and evaluate transcripts. Usually there is a 24–48 hour turnaround time for transcript evaluations. If you receive transfer credit, you will receive an email at your Central Piedmont email address once your transcript evaluation is complete. You can view the transferred courses and for which Central Piedmont courses you received credit as a result of your transcript evaluation in MyCollege under “Transcript.” All transferred courses will appear on your transcript with a grade of “TR.” Transfer courses do not impact financial aid.

Step Three - Apply to The Center for Preshospital Medicine (CPM)

*This will require a Google account for sign-in

Attach all required transcripts, test results, and certifications to the application packet — it is your responsibility to provide all necessary documents, as the EMS Education program does not have access to any transcripts.

Step Four - Anatomy and Physiology (A+P) Requirement

**NOTE this might not apply to each applicant. We HIGHLY ENCOURAGE you to follow the steps below to ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria. CPCC admissions will make the final determination if a student has successfully completed an applicable A&P course.


Step 1 – After applying to CPCC, get a transcript evaluation as quickly as possible.

A&P Exemptions TYPICALLY applies to applicants who have the following:

  • Hold a 2 or 4 year degree, that included a Human Anatomy & Physiology course requirement. Typically involved 6-8 credit hours
  • Previous college student without a degree, and successfully completed a Anatomy & Physiology course (5 – 8 credit hours) with a C or greater grade, within the last 10 years.


Step 2 – If you haven’t taken a Human Anatomy & Physiology course, or CPCC does not accept transcript courses, CPCC requires that students complete ONE of the following Anatomy and Physiology course before starting Paramedic coursework.

  • (Option 1) BIO- 163: Basic Anatomy and Physiology
  • (Option 2) BIO- 165 & 166: Anatomy and Physiology I & II (Must complete both sections)
  • (Option 3) BIO- 168 & 169: Anatomy and Physiology I & II (Must complete both sections)

Due to the time constraints, it is best for students needing A&P to take Option 1, the BIO-163 course. This course can be completed online and before the paramedic coursework begins in August.

Options 2 and 3 takes two semesters to complete.


CPCC is offering two sessions of BIO 163

Registration Opens April 15th

  • Online Session May 17 – July 16
  • In-person Session May 17 – June 17   T/R 9:30 – 1120 (Lab)  T/R 12:15- 13:15 (Lecture)

Check-in with your academic advisor before registering.

Register: You can register online in MyCollege.
