Applying as a Guest Student for the Clinical Year Program

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.

Biological Sciences  16
Chemistry  (with at least one semester in organic or biochemistry) 16
Mathematics (college-level math; statistics preferred)  3
Minimum GPA  (in both cumulative and in the cognate sciences) 2.50

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 can possibly be waived. Contact the Program Director to request an evaluation of course equivalency.
