Program eligibility

Application process - Consult this information for steps to apply and enroll in a health program, deadlines, eligibility worksheets, and essential physical capabilities and functions.

Competitive entry process

Being accepted to KCC does not mean acceptance into the Medical Laboratory Technology program. A competitive entry enrollment process is used because there is a limit to the number of students who may be accepted.

The MLT program accepts 15 new students into the program each fall. For the Advanced Option 1, eligible applicants will be accepted based on whether there are open seats to maintain the 15 seat capacity.

Applicants who meet minimum records and academic eligibility requirements by the deadline must meet with a health careers advisor for clearance to take the A2 Entrance Exam. The A2 Entrance Exam (HESI A2) must be passed with a 70% or higher to maintain eligibility to enter the program. Eligible students who are not offered a seat will be alternates.
