Students seeking admission to the program must complete an application to the college and be admitted into the Medical Laboratory Technology General Education program. Once general education/prerequisite requirements are completed, students may apply to be allowed to register in the technical portion of the program. Admission to this portion of the program is limited by space and clinical resources. If the number of applicants exceeds the number of available spaces, candidates will be ranked according to a points system. A complete explanation of the application process and points system may be found in the MLT application packet, which can be accessed on the MLT webpage. This application process occurs once per year between May and July for registration for the Fall semester. Specific deadlines will be posted on the MLT program page.
