UCM BS Medical Laboratory Science

The below list of courses represents the requirements a student will have left to complete after transferring to UCM with an Associate of Arts degree. Any courses listed above not taken at SFCC must be completed as part of BS requirements.

Medical Laboratory Science Transfer Credit: 30 Semester Hours

Transfer courses in various accredited medical technology programs may vary from hospital to hospital and are part of the Medical Technology functional major required by affiliation agreement for this program.  They are not offered on campus or open to students in other programs. 

Transfer credit for these courses is allowed for work taken at one of our affiliated hospitals in Kansas City (North Kansas City Hospital, Saint Luke’s Hospital or K.U. in Kansas City, Kansas); in Springfield (Lester E. Cox Medical Center); in Joplin (Mercy Hospital); in Wichita (Wichita State University Medical Technology Program); in St. Louis (Mercy Hospital) or any fully accredited hospital medical technology training program which must be accredited by the American Medical Association Council on Medical Education. Admission and fees for the hospital portions of this program are the prerogative of the hospital and thus cannot be guaranteed by the University. Licensure to practice is dependent  upon state regulations and professional examinations and thus cannot be guaranteed by the University or hospital. For additional information on this program and for entry into clinical programs,  students are urged to see the program faculty advisor at their earliest convenience. Because of complexities of affiliation agreements and variations in clinical programs, all pertinent information cannot be presented in this catalog.

It is the student’s responsibility to notify UCM of the completion of the rotations so transfer credit can be posted and the degree can be awarded.

Free Choice Electives: 1 Semester Hour

Free choice elective hours may vary depending on transfer coursework and course selection at UCM.

Students must take at least 30 upper-level (3000/4000) hours to graduate. Courses taken at SFCC that articulate to upper-level UCM courses do not count towards upper-level hours.

Minimum Total Hours Required for BS: 120 Semester Hours
