If you are chosen to participate in the MLT program, you will be contacted directly by the program director and will receive an acceptance letter.  Please be aware that you must complete orientation online prior to the start of fall semester, This means you will start orientation upon admission and complete orientation before the end of the summer. Orientation includes the following tasks:

Important** Start with tasks marked with asterisks (**). They may take extra time. You must complete these tasks by the due date to be guaranteed a seat in the MLT program. Once you are admitted, visit your D2L Brightspace website MLT Student Center link for detailed orientation due dates, guidance, forms, information and requirements.   Always monitor and use ONLY your LSC email. We will not contact you by personal email.**After admission, you will receive an email with instructions to set up a Student Passport account (no cost). You must do this within a short period of time or the invitation expires. Follow the directions carefully. You will use this account to submit important health information. This is a secure site. Do not upload immunization information to D2L.

**Background checks**

Complete the  Minnesota Department of Human Services Background Study and the National Criminal Background check as soon as you are admitted. All details are on the orientation website. This is critical. If anything comes up on the background checks you must address it immediately. You cannot start the program until these are complete and your background checks are clear. DHS will cost a total of about $30. The national criminal background check cost will start at around $60 but increase per name and per state.
