ISU offers two pathways for Paramedic Science students:

  • The Associate of Science in Paramedic Science
  • The Paramedic Science Academic Certificate

Both pathways require the same prerequisites and both complete the same Paramedic Science curriculum. Students who complete the Paramedic Science four-semester curriculum and ISU’s general education requirements will receive the associate of science degree. Students who complete the Paramedic Science four-semester curriculum only will receive the academic certificate but may continue to complete the associate degree at any time.
