1 All courses taken from the list of major program requirements are used in the calculation of the major GPA.

2 A minimum C (2.000) grade must be earned to fulfill the writing-intensive requirement.

3 Students who complete the required in-hospital clinical experience fulfill the experiential learning requirement.

Students are expected to consult with a medical technology advisor before registering for courses each semester.

The fourth year clinical training is NOT guaranteed. It is highly competitive, typically requiring a minimum overall 3.000 GPA.

Students majoring in medical technology are not required to meet the foreign language College General Requirement.

Special Major Note:

Students who pass 15 credits of non-remedial academic coursework each fall and spring semester and the 1-credit First Year Experience course will accumulate 121 credits in four years. This major requires 121 credits for graduation. Students can stay on track for graduation by:

  • Declaring their major as freshmen and completing all courses in sequence (bear in mind that switching majors may cause a delay in graduation);
  • Prioritizing required courses above electives;
  • Meeting regularly with their academic advisors to stay on track;
  • Passing each required course the first time attempted and maintaining the minimal GPA for the major;
  • Successfully completing more than 15 credit hours of relevant coursework (field-based work, internship) during academic semesters; and/or
  • Completing relevant coursework (field-based work, internship) during summer sessions.
