Admission Requirements


Applicants for admission to the Professional Medical Laboratory Science program must meet requirements for admission to the University. The Medical Laboratory Science curriculum offers clinical instruction in its educational program as required by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS). Admissions are determined annually based upon the availability of clinical positions and instructional resources available to the program.

Applicants for admission to the professional program must complete the requirements of the PMLS curriculum with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 (uncorrected, based on a 4.0 system) exclusive of developmental courses, a minimum grade point average of 2.7 (corrected, based on a 4.0 system) in all required pre-professional courses, and possess a grade of “C” or better in all required science, mathematics, and medical laboratory science courses.

An application packet for admission into the professional program may be obtained below during the spring semester. Completed application forms, along with the application fee, must be received by the Medical Laboratory Science Admissions Committee. 

Each application will be reviewed individually for compliance with the requirements for admission.

The Program Director, with the committee’s recommendation, will notify each applicant regarding admission status. Because there are a limited number of clinical positions, students are selected on a competitive basis.

Due to the utilization of objective criteria in processing applications, attainment of minimum requirements in the pre-Medical Laboratory Science curriculum does not guarantee admission to the professional Medical Laboratory Science program.

If a student is not admitted to the professional MLS program, reapplication must be made following the regular procedure. The student must fulfill all prerequisites in the required sequence of courses leading to the application for the professional program in Medical Laboratory Science.

The ULM MLS Professional Program is currently accepting applications for the fall 2022 class. ULM MLS Professional Program Application 2022

Be sure to email the completed application to Mrs. Lasiter at lasiter@ulm.edu by August 1, 2022. If you are lacking a pre-requisite course, please reach out to me to work out a plan.
