Medical Lab Technology Fast Track

The Fast-Track Program is available for students with an earned Bachelor's degree in Chemistry, Biology or a related science field (degree must be regionally-accredited). If you have earned an Associate's Degree that is science-related, or a general AA degree with strong sciences, you may also be eligible — see a Health Science Advisor for more information.

The Medical Lab Tech's rigorous Fast Track program can be completed in as little as 15 months, and leads to national certification and licensure as a Clinical Laboratory Technologist. In order to qualify with your earned degree, you must also:

  • Have a strong College GPA (3.5 for Associate's Degree; 3.0 for Bachelor's Degree)
  • Have earned a minimum grade of B in both General Chemistry 1 and 2
  • Demonstrate successful completion of science courses, full-time credit load, in at least two semesters
  • Due to the rigorous course load of the Fast Track Program, BSCC 1426, Intro to Biotech (or approved substitute), should be completed before program start.

Applicants must follow the application procedure for the MLT program. Applicants should see a Health Science Advisor before the Open House. You must attend a mandatory Open House for the program and bring an unofficial copy of all of your college transcript(s) with you. It is important that your official college transcripts are evaluated by the Registrar's Office prior to intended program start.
