Applicants must also meet all technical standards required by the program and have at least two years' full time work experience (minimum 4,000 working hours) as a nationally certified MLT in an accredited human diagnostic laboratory. The MLT to MLS/MT is a 10-month lock-step program, starting in August and concluding in June. You may need to complete prerequisite courses before gaining acceptance to the program. If so, you will find APSU offers hundreds of classes online.
Once you are accepted, you will take two classes during each of four eight-week terms. Two eight-week terms are offered in the fall, and in the spring. Additionally, you will complete one course during May session, which spans from mid-May to early June. Upon successful completion of these courses, you will receive course credit for your work experience. Students graduate at the end of summer session in early August.

Step 2: Once accepted to Austin Peay, students may then apply to the MLT to MLS/MT program by clicking on the "Apply now" tab, print and complete the MLT to MLS program application and mail it to the Allied Health Sciences department.
A valid APSU student ID number (which begins with an "A") is required as part of the MLT to MLS/MT program application. Unfortunately, there is no way for the faculty to evaluate prospective students' transfer credits. This must be done by the Registrar following admission to the University.
After a student is accepted to the University, program faculty will review each student's transcripts as part of the MLT to MLS/MT program application to identify any deficiencies in prerequisite coursework which must be completed before admission to the 10-month MLT-MLS/MT program. APSU offers hundreds of online course options to complete program pre-requisites.
