Where do I start?

You will complete an Associate of Science-Transfer (AS-T) Track 1 at Shoreline.

Once you complete your Shoreline degree, you can transfer to a four-year school to earn a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Medical Laboratory Science.

Another pathway option is Shoreline’s Associate in Applied Arts and Sciences AAAS in Medical Laboratory Technology. This two-year degree leads to a technician level employment license, but does not transfer to a university. For more information, visit http://www.shoreline.edu/medlabtech/.

What courses should I take?

This unofficial guide is intended to support you as you prepare for your major. Please consult with an advisor and your chosen four-year school(s), as programs and admission requirements vary and may change without notice.

More information about programs in Medical Laboratory Science

Applicants must apply to both the Department of Laboratory Medicine and the UW Admissions Office. The application deadline is February 15th each year. The program admits some international students.

For more information, contact medtech@u.washington.edu or visit the website at http://depts.washington.edu/labweb/

The UW requires two years of the same world language in high school or two quarters in college for admission. Non-native speakers of English are exempt. Those on an international student visa will need to take an English proficiency exam, as per UW Admissions Requirements.


* The UW Medical Laboratory Science program requires MATH& 146  or MATH 211  for admission. The Associate in Science - Track 1, AS-T1 Planning Guide  degree also requires MATH& 151 , MATH& 152 . Students who choose not to take the extra math courses can graduate with an Associate in Arts-Individualized Plan (AA-IP) and still be prepared for a major in Medical Laboratory Technology. UW Medical Laboratory Science does not require organic chemistry labs, but Shoreline Chemistry Department does require them with the lecture classes. Additionally, Associate in Science Gen Ed and Distribution courses can be used towards Medical Laboratory Science graduate requirements.

Where can I transfer?

The only school in Washington state school that offers a Bachelor Level Medical Laboratory Science Program is the University of Washington, Seattle campus. The Associate in Science Transfer (AS-T) degree is designed to prepare students entrance into a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) program, such as Medical Laboratory Science. The primary focus of the AS-T degree is completion of the necessary math and science requirements for junior standing at Washington state baccalaureate institutions. Students will be required to take additional general education courses after transfer to fulfill university requirements.
