The Associate of Applied Science in Clinical Laboratory Technology provides the student with entry-level competence in the laboratory that would render him/her competitive for employment and/or advancement as well as allowing him/her to take the national (American Society of Clinical Pathologists, ASCP) certification examination for Medical Laboratory Technicians. Classroom instruction and clinical experiences prepare individuals to perform diagnostic tests and procedures under the supervision of medical technologists and pathologists. Students should note that some courses have prerequisites, which must be completed before enrolling into upper level courses and continuing in the program. This program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS) and the American Medical Association (AMA). Although a terminal degree program, general education requirements as well as some of the technical courses may be transferable to a variety of baccalaureate programs.
