MA-116 Calculus for the Biological Sciences (3 cr.) or MA-125 Calculus with Analytic Geometry I (4 cr.)are taken by student who score 4 on the Math Placement Exam.


Completion of collegiate work prescribed by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS) is followed by an eleven month training period in a NAACLS-approved hospital program. Successful completion qualifies graduates to take the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP) Board Certificate Exam.


ML-411 will partially complete Writing Intensive (WT) requirement in General Education Requirements.


Please consult with your advisor regarding the required number of free electives that must be completed.


The General Education curriculum requires the completion of 45 credits. However, students may be able to share credits from within their major or interdisciplinary requirements.  Please consult with your advisor to determine which General Education courses must be completed.  The order given in the sequence charts for Gen*Ed courses is advisory.  Students may change the order of those course to suit their interests. 


Students can take BY-216 in place of IT-102 but there will be an additional credit since BY-216 is a 4-credit course. Students are therefore encouraged to consult their advisors.


  • 54 credits must be completed at the 200 level or higher.
