With the exception of the preclinical fundamental courses and the Clinical Year courses, Guest students applying to the Clinical Year Program must complete all coursework required for the MLS degree from their home college/university prior to the beginning of the Clinical Year each Fall Semester. A letter from the home college/university, stating that all coursework has been completed is required before guest students can register for Clinical Year classes.

In addition, all Clinical Year Program guest students must complete the following pre-clinical fundamental courses at the Berrien Springs campus, the summer prior to the beginning of the Clinical Year. If equivalent courses were previously taken, these requirements may be waived. Contact the Program Director to request an evaluation of course equivalency.
