To learn more about IUP, the clinical laboratory science program, and a career as a clinical laboratory scientist:
Students must have at least a 2.0 grade point average to be accepted into the clinical laboratory science major. For more information about the program, about progression criteria and special requirements and for assistance in developing a potential plan of study contact the allied health coordinator.
Individuals who have already earned one bachelor’s degree may be admitted to the university with advanced placement. To earn the second bachelor’s degree, students must meet the remaining requirements for graduation specified for the clinical laboratory science program, including the twelve-month clinical year. In some cases where the first degree is in biology or chemistry, students may only have a few remaining requirements to complete before beginning the clinical year. Contact the Office of Distance Learning and Continuing Education for application information. In addition, the allied health coordinator is available to assist in the preliminary planning process for earning a second bachelor’s degree and beginning a career as a clinical laboratory scientist.
