To apply for the Clinical Lab Science program, you must have:
- An official high school or GED and college/program transcripts (if applicable) on file in the LCCC Records office
- A program application form on file
- High school algebra or equivalent course credit
- A minimum GPA of 2.0 on all college-level course work (including transfer/transient work)
If you are interested in applying to this program, you must:
- Complete the LCCC Application for Admission.
- Complete the placement assessment.
- Complete all Allied Health and Nursing Program Pre-Admission Requirements as specified on the program check list. (The checklist provides you with information regarding the application requirements and admissions procedures for a particular Health and Wellness program. It can be obtained from an academic advisor.)
- Meet with an advisor to verify that all requirements have been fulfilled. Upon verification of requirements, you may then file a Program Application.
Transferring to LCCC
If you are transferring from another college or university, the Records office should receive all transcripts at least 12 weeks before you complete a program application. This ensures that the processing of non-LCCC transcripts is completed well in advance of specific Allied Health and Nursing program application deadlines.
