AS Degree required for program completion:

Due to new CAAHEP* standards, students entering the program in the fall of 2012 (the graduating class of 2014) and later, must complete an AS degree in order to graduate from the Cardiovascular Technology Program.  This requires that all AS degree general education requirements be completed.  Please see the college catalog for specific requirements at

This requirement will not apply to students entering the program in fall 2011 and prior.

Attention All Health Profession Students

Please be aware that students accepted to the Health Professions Programs (Nursing, RT, CVT, SLPA, OTA) at Grossmont College are required to undergo a background check and a urine drug screening test before starting the program or being placed at a clinical site. We expect the cost of these procedures may be $70 - $120. The student will be responsible for paying these fees.

It should be noted that failure to pass either or both of these procedures may interfere with clinical placement and/or acceptance of the student into the program.

All communication between the program office and the student is by email. All emails sent to the student on the waitlist and currently in the program are sent with a delivery and read receipt. If you chose not to check the read receipt, the program is not responsible if the student states that they did not receive the email.
