Professional Program in Clinical Laboratory Science
The Clinical laboratory science Program provides graduates with the technical and administrative skills required for the effective delivery of health care services consistent with the practices and standards of Clinical Laboratory Sciences. Graduates are prepared and qualified to perform evaluations of testing techniques, procedures, and personnel; to perform analytical testing of any body sample; and to resolve discrepancies with the interpretation of diagnostic laboratory patient data. Graduates also possess the capabilities needed for public education, as well as for planning and developing clinical laboratory facilities that meet the standards of accrediting governmental regulatory agencies.
Students seeking admission to this program must arrange an appointment with the Program Director prior to submitting an application. Once initial advisement is completed, students should make application to the program by April for the Fall class. There is only one entering class each year.

Advanced standing within the Health Sciences is the administrative placement of a student in a specific health program based on program requirements and the applicant’s completion of previous credits. Program applicants who qualify for advanced standing receive an administratively approved, individually prepared degree plan that recognizes previously earned college credits and professional credentials.
