Requirements and Steps to Admission
The MLT Program is full for Fall 2013.
Please check back in August for the new application and application dates for the fall 2014 program.
Applications are no longer being accepted for the fall 2013 program. Please check back in August for the new application and application dates for the fall 2014 program. Students who have previously applied must complete a new application to be considered for the fall 2014 program.
You will need to also supply an unofficial college transcript from any college you have attended other than Portland Community College. Official transcripts may need to be sent after admission to the program. Transcripts should accompany your application or be mailed directly to the Allied Health Admissions office below, not Student Records. If all prerequisite requirements have been met at PCC, the MLT Program will obtain PCC transcripts to verify prerequisite completion.
Students new to PCC, or those who have not taken a PCC credit class in the past two years, must apply for PCC College Admission before applying to the Medical Laboratory Technology program. Mail your completed application and transcripts to:
Portland Community College
Allied Health Admissions, CA TEB 201

Note: the department obtains PCC transcripts on all PCC students.
Information Sessions: New Information Sessions will be scheduled when the admission dates, and admission requirements are determined. Please check back in September for new information session dates.
Students must meet the following prerequisite requirements prior to completing/submitting an application to the program. To determine if previous coursework meets the prerequisite requirements see the Admissions Coordinator Karen Henry.
