The Medical Laboratory Technician program starts once a year in Fall semester. Applications will be accepted until the program is full.

Before applying to the MLT program, be sure you’re an accepted LSC student and have completed all pre-program courses and requirements.

Become an LSC student


  • Apply to LSC
    Before you apply to the MLT program you must apply and become an LSC student.

  • Declare your major
    When you apply to become an LSC student, choose MLT as your major. If you change your major after you apply to LSC, make sure to meet with an advisor.

  • Have you been an LSC student before?
    If you’ve taken classes for credit at LSC in the last 2 years, don’t reapply. If it’s been 2 years or more since you took a class, you need to apply to become an LSC student again.

Complete pre-program courses and requirements

Complete all “pre-program” requirements / courses specified in your program guide.

Review pre program requirements in the program guide including:
• English/reading

Background check
If you have been arrested, charged, or convicted of any criminal offense, you should investigate the impact that the arrest, charge, or conviction may have on your chances of employment in the field you intend to study.

Accreditation
The Medical Laboratory Technician program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS).

Student selection
The MLT program enrolls 15 students each fall. Students who become LSC students and complete all MLT pre-program requirements (including required GPA) will be admitted to the MLT program as long as there are available seats in the program. In the event there are more students than seats available, priority will be given to students who completed their pre-program requirements first. Students are ranked by when pre-program requirements are completed and when they completed their application to LSC / declared MLT as their program. In the event there are multiple students who completed pre-program requirements in the same term AND completed their LSC application on the same date, GPA in pre-program courses will be used as a tie-breaker.
