The Medical Laboratory Science Coordinated Graduate program prepares students to become nationally registered medical laboratory scientists and work in clinical laboratory positions upon graduation.  The Coordinated Graduate program of the Medical Laboratory Science program is designed for the student who has an undergraduate degree in a major other than Medical Laboratory Science and would like to return to school to pursue a career as a medical laboratory scientist.   Graduates are eligible to sit for the national examination.  Students will enter the program, for one academic year, as an undergraduate student.  Students will then transition to the Graduate School and ultimately earn a Master of Science upon completion of all program requirements.  

Each year the Medical Laboratory Science application windows for the graduate programs open on September 1 for admission the following autumn. The MLS program will accept all applications for graduate track until December 1. If the division feels that we have not received enough qualified applicants from this initial applicant pool, the applicant window MAY be re-opened beyond that date. Please check the Professional Admissions website to view the current closing date for this application cycle. Applicants for the coordinated graduate track should not complete an application to The OSU Graduate School Admissions at this time. You will need to complete the application provided by The Professional Admissions office like our other tracks.
