CLS Courses

Once you have been accepted into the program, you will begin CLS Courses.  You will progress through the Junior and Senior year with your cohort of up to 20 students. 

If you have successfully completed all of your prerequisite courses and pass all of the following courses with a "C" or better, you will graduate in August with a Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Science.

**Note: It is difficult to work during your Senior year (particularly Spring and Summer) due to clinical rotation and classroom requirements.

Program Progression

Successful program progression requires students to complete each semester in a lock-step sequence with a grade of "C" or higher in all major (CLS) courses.  According to CLS program policy, students with a grade of less than a "C" in a CLS course will be stepped out of the program and must reapply to the program the following academic year.  To be considered for program readmission, all original program admission criteria and an approved schedule for retaking courses must be met.

You will be proud of your degree because you will earn it.  There is a great deal of diversity in the field, where you can work, and what you can do using this degree as a foundation!
