The university grants a bachelor of science degree in Clinical Laboratory Science (Medical Laboratory Science/Medical Technology). Upon completion of the program, the graduates are eligible to take the Medical Laboratory Scientist (MLS) certification exam administered by the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP). Students begin the CLS program in fall semester of their junior year, contingent upon completion of prerequisites either at this university or at another college (see Admission Requirements below). Both on-campus and internet students have four semesters of classroom, laboratory and internships through clinical affiliates.
For the distance/WEB students, laboratories are conducted at a satellite laboratory in the Atlanta area or at the clinical affiliates. The clinical internships are conducted at affiliated clinical sites. Internet students are encouraged to identify possible internship sites convenient to them. The program of Clinical Laboratory Science will contact these sites to explore a clinical affiliation. The program requires computer capability and Internet connectivity.
