This entrance exam is mandatory for applicants to the UCLA Paramedic Education Program and consists of the FISDAP Paramedic Entrance Exam.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, our Paramedic Entrance Exam is currently administered remotely utilizing ProctorU, which will allow you to take the test from home. You will receive an email with instructions on how to register with FISDAP and ProctorU to complete the testing process at least one week before your testing period. Once you register for both FISDAP and ProctorU, you will be able to schedule a date and time of your choice to take through ProctorU, and must schedule it 72 hours in advance. If you need to schedule your exam sooner than 72 hours’ notice with ProctorU, there will be a non-refundable rush charge from ProctorU.

The exam fee of $75 is valid for two exams and you may only take the exam twice. To schedule a second exam attempt please email us at paramedic@mednet.ucla.edu, or call the paramedic office at (310) 680-1100. Test scores are valid for two years. In addition to the $75 exam fee, each ProctorU session costs $19.75. The ProctorU fee for your first exam is charged at the time you enroll. If you choose to re-test, you will need to purchase an additional ProctorU attempt for $19.75. To purchase another ProctorU attempt, please call the paramedic office at 310-680-1100. Once you make your purchase, you will receive an email with instructions on how to schedule your exam.
