The LSC Surgical Technology Program admissions process is competitive. It’s a separate process from becoming an LSC student. All Surgical Technology Program applicants who complete minimum admission requirements by the application deadline will be considered for admission to the program. Meeting minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission into the Surgical Technology Program.

Wait for notification of acceptance

You can expect to receive notification from LSC’s Surgical Technology department mid-March.

  • Accepted students MUST complete the required next steps by the deadline

    Accepted Surgical Technology students will be notified by email. Be sure to set up your LSC email account and check it periodically. You must complete forms and return to us as directed in acceptance letter to secure your seat in the program. Mandatory orientation sessions will be offered in June and July either on-campus or via Zoom.

If you were NOT accepted, you can reapply during a future application period.

You must complete the entire Surgical Technology application process again. You do not have to apply to Lake Superior College again.

LSC Professional Advisors

We highly recommend you meet with a Health Sciences Academic Advisor as you begin your program and throughout to address any questions you may have.

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.


The Surgical Technology program is accredited by the Accreditation Review Committee on Education in Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting ARC/STSA.

Student Selection

Eligible students will be admitted to the program as long as there are seats available. In the event there are more students than seats available, priority is given as follows:

  • Students who become LSC students and have completed all pre-program requirements
  • Eligible students who have applied by March 1
  • Date pre-program requirements are completed
  • Date of Surgical Technology application and program declaration
  • In the event of a tie, GPA in pre-program courses will be used as a tie-breaker.
