Office of Admissions Advisement 

The Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences offers a ladder-format program, with the four-year curriculum divided into two programs, the Associate of Applied Science program followed by the Bachelor of Science program. Depending on your career track, the MLS program can provide you with a variety of career opportunities or lead you into pre-professional course requirements for medical or graduate schools.



don't delay your Math & English requirements, know where to start today  

  • Placement Information

    Math and English general education requirements are often delayed by students and can postpone your graduation! 

    Don't delay, and get this done. Watch our Math and English video and learn more about where to start. 

    More information about Math and English requirements can be found by visiting weber.edu/placement.



  • Math & English Video


please thoroughly review the following resources before scheduling an advisement appointment  

  • Applicant Checklist 

    Our applicant checklist reviews each step you need to take to be a successful candidate for this program. This checklist is crucial! Always refer first to your program checklist when choosing general education courses. Many of your program prerequisites also count as general education requirements.

    Please review the checklist closely and come prepared with questions. We are happy to help!

    Choose Your Math & English Path 

    • Begin with math and English courses your first semester and continue each semester until the general education requirement is complete. You can find your math and English placements in CatTracks.
    • For placement testing, visit weber.edu/placement


    Balance = Success 

    • Taking more than two science courses (math included) in a semester may be overwhelming. Balance your course load with other general education requirements.
    • Medical Terminology (HTHS 1101) is highly recommended before your first course in anatomy and physiology. 
    • Know the difference—Health Sciences vs. Zoology Anatomy & Physiology


    Your Focus

    • Your program prerequisites may have pre- or co-requisites. If choosing Track II under MLS (see MLS degree pages) you will need to complete prerequisites before you are able to enroll in CHEM 1210 or MICR 2054. Track II pre-med students should also attend a pre-med meeting hosted by the College of Science. Find the next meeting by visiting weber.edu/cos/COS_calendar.html.
