Pre-Medical Laboratory Technology

Career Studies Certificate

PURPOSE: The Pre-Medical Laboratory Technology Career Studies Certificate (CSC) is designed to help prepare students for admission to the Medical Laboratory Technology AAS degree. Students enrolled in this CSC are not yet accepted into the Medical Laboratory Technology degree, but are completing their general education and prerequisite courses. After completing this CSC, students will need to apply for admission to the Medical Laboratory Technology AAS degree.

OCCUPATIONAL OBJECTIVES: This program is designed to prepare students to succeed in the Medical Laboratory Technology AAS degree.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS: General college curricular admission

PROGRAM NOTES: This program takes new students in the spring, summer, and fall semesters of each year. Students must declare their plan as Pre-Medical Laboratory Technology CSC (code 221-151-01) and will be assigned the Medical Laboratory Technology AAS plan (code 151). Students enrolled in this CSC are encouraged to meet with their program advisor during the first semester of courses. Completion of this CSC does not guarantee admission into the Medical Laboratory Technology degree.

COMPUTER COMPETENCY REQUIREMENT: Students in this program will meet the college’s computer competency requirement by successfully completing ITE 115 or CSC 155. Students can also meet this requirement by passing the college’s computer competency exam, administered in the testing centers on each campus, in which case they will receive college credit for ITE 115 or CSC 155. Students not passing the computer competency exam may retake the exam only once.
