MLT Program Information
The curriculum of the MLT program 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 required in each medical laboratory science course. The MLT program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences. Program graduates are eligible to take the national certification examination for MLT. Applicants should be aware that 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 substance abuse 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.
