Medical Laboratory Technicians with nationally recognized certification may be granted credit for the Junior level CLSC courses following validation by challenge exam. A limited number of students who have completed all prerequisite coursework may apply to the program with a request to pursue coursework on a part-time basis. Students in the part-time option will be admitted on a space available basis. No clinical laboratory science courses older than five years may be used to meet graduation requirements. Students seeking more information regarding the part-time option or advanced placement opportunities should contact the Department.
