Curriculum

Medical Laboratory Technology Degree Sheet (PDF)

All program courses (HSML) from the prior semester must be completed to progress to the next semester. All MLT program courses and science prerequisite courses will require a minimum grade of C or better to graduate. Failure to attain the minimum grade in MLT program courses will result in a stop-out and require readmission to the program. Readmission will be based upon space availability. Students may be readmitted only one time.

Program Requirements and Course Sequencing

Students must earn a “C” or better in all courses to be eligible for graduation. Pre-requisite courses may be in progress during the application period and summer session, but must be completed prior to beginning the program professional courses.  Admission to the program is contingent on a grade of “C” or higher on courses being completed in the spring and summer semesters.
