Let's Get Started


The SWOSU MLT Program is accredited with the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS), 5600 N. River Road, Suite 720 Rosemont, IL 60018-5119, and phone # (773)714-8880.  The associate degree earned, along with the NAACLS Accreditation of the SWOSU MLT Program, enables the MLT student to qualify for testing with certifying bodies such as the American Society of Clinical Pathologists Board of Registry, thus giving the student the title of MLT (ASCP) and with the American Medical Technologist thus giving them an MLT (AMT).

Other Information

Only students who meet graduation requirements may sit for the national certification examination. Immunization against Hepatitis B is required before entrance into the MLT program. This program requires specific course sequencing, so students should see program advisors for proper enrollment.
