MLS Student Curriculum Guide

MLS Student Curriculum Guide.  Click here to see courses required for the BS, MLS.

Courses listed here fulfill requirements for a Bachelor of Science, major in Medical Laboratory Science, from North Dakota State University.  Courses included in the first three years must be completed prior to starting the professional class and clinical experience/internship (MLS 496) in a NAACLS accredited, affiliated hospital-based medical laboratory science program. Transfer students must successfully complete a minimum of 20 resident credits at NDSU prior to the start of the professional program/internship.  Upon completion of all educational requirements, including the professional program/internship, NDSU bestows the baccalaureate degree and the graduate is eligible to take the national certification exam offered by the American Society for Clinical Pathology Board of Certification.

While every effort is made to provide accurate and current information, curriculum requirements tend to be updated annually. Students are subject to meeting the curriculum requirements in effect at the time of entrance into a major or program of study. It is strongly recommended that the student prepare a degree plan with their adviser to ensure that all MLS major, general education and degree requirements are satisfactorily completed.
