The Admissions cycle begins in September for the following year. The Program deadline for all applications, references, and transcripts to be received in order to be considered for the following academic year is November 1 since some admissions decisions are beginning to be made by mid-October. Applications will continue to be accepted, however candidates should be aware that the bulk of admissions are concluded by shortly after New Year's.
New York State has licensure laws in place for Clinical Laboratory Scientists. The Program accepts students who are in 3+1 programs (completed 3 years of study at home college or university). BS holders who wish to apply to the Program must matriculate at a college or university that will confer a second BS in MT/CLS, or an advanced certificate of completion, upon them when they successfully complete the clinical year. In short, the 4+1 route whereby BS holders could attend the program without collegiate affiliation, is eliminated.
At the conclusion of the Program, all students are eligible to sit for a national certification examination which is also the NYS License Exam. Our students have historically done extremely well on comprehensive challenge examination.
