The CLS Major for Medical Laboratory Technicians

Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT/CLT):
Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) Articulation

Special opportunities are available for individuals who have completed an Associate’s degree in a medical/clinical laboratory technician program and who have passed a recognized national certification examination.

Through advising and planned academic and clinical coursework, medical laboratory technicians are provided a unique opportunity to complete the baccalaureate degree without repeating clinical areas in which they are already proficient.

Medical laboratory technicians interested in this articulation opportunity should contact the department chair to discuss curriculum planning based on their previous academic and clinical experiences.
