The MLT curriculum, which leads to an Associate of Applied Science degree, is an integrated program of technical courses in medical laboratory science, fundamental courses in natural science, and complementary humanities and social sciences. A minimum grade of “C” is mandatory in all required MLS courses and in the following general education courses: BY 103 Intro to Anatomy and Physiology, CY 104 Chemistry I for Health Sciences, BY 154 Anatomy and Physiology I, and MS 123 College Algebra. The MLT program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences. Program graduates are eligible to apply to take the national certification examination for MLT. Applicants should be aware violation of any federal, state, or local drug law or conviction of a crime may prohibit the student from entering a clinical agency to care for clients. In addition, clinical facilities also may require a criminal background check and/or drug test as a condition of clinical practice in the respective facility. Inability to complete the clinical course because of failure to meet these requirements will result in course failure.

The National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS) is also a resource for information regarding the program. The MLT program is NAACLS accredited. Individuals may contact NAACLS at:
