Applications from students attending nonaffiliated colleges or universities will be accepted, although preference will be given to applicants from schools with which the program has a formal affiliation. A full year of academic credit is granted by affiliated and nonaffiliated institutions to students enrolled in the program, so that "3+1" graduates will receive a bachelor's degree at the next scheduled college/university commencement following their graduation from the program.
Undergraduates from nonaffiliated colleges/universities must have a statement from the degree-granting institution certifying that it will award a degree at the completion of the training, according to the Standards of the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS).
Students who have already earned a bachelor's degree are considered nonaffiliates and receive 35 credit hours of instruction from the program. All program graduates receive a certificate upon completion of the clinical year course work.
Graduates of the program are eligible to take the national certification examination offered by the American Society for Clinical Pathology Board of Certification (ASCP).
