PROGRAM OUTCOMES
Medical Laboratory Sciences 

 

The information below demonstrates our commitment to the mission of the Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences and our programs.

Upon satisfactory completion of the program (completion of associate degree level and/or baccalaureate degree level of university requirements), graduates are eligible to sit for the national certification exam offered by the American Society for Clinical Pathology Board of Certification (ASCP-BOC) exam. Granting of the degree from the MLS program is not contingent on passing an external certification exam.
