The MLS programs at Weber State University are accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS). After students graduate from our programs, they are eligible to take the corresponding board of certification (BOC) exam through the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP).
However, PLEASE BE AWARE, that we do not assist with state licensure, it is the student's responsibility to ensure that they meet the additional requirements of their state health department to practice in their state.
We recommend reaching out to your local health department to inquire about any additional requirements outside of the ASCP certification.
