Medical Laboratory Technology Degree
Medical Laboratory Technology Associate in Applied Science Degree (0022) Course Sequence
This is a 70-71 credit-hour, two-year accredited degree program, which can be completed in four semesters and two summers and includes:
- 36-37 credit hours of general education courses
- 34 credit hours of Medical Laboratory Technology courses
The curriculum includes mathematics, chemistry and biological sciences, as well as MLT technical courses and assigned clinical experiences.
General Education Courses
General education courses can be completed prior to admission. However, because the course schedule is primarily general education courses during the first year, it is not recommended to complete all courses before the program starts. Only 12 credit hours of the general education courses are required to use the SWIC GPA option in lieu of ACT/SAT scores. These courses can be taken at the Belleville, Sam Wolf Granite City or Red Bud campuses. If general education courses are not completed prior to admission, they must be completed during the semesters indicated.
Medical Laboratory Technology Courses
The Medical Laboratory Technology program courses begin in the fall for those applicants accepted into the program. These courses are only offered at the Belleville Campus during the day. View the course sequence.
Clinical Education Experiences
Clinical experience courses begin in the second year of the program and are completed off campus in various settings. Students may be required to travel outside the college district for clinical experience courses and must have background checks and drug testing prior to starting clinical practice. Specific clinical placement cannot be guaranteed.
