How to Apply

Dear Prospective Student,

Thank you for your interest in the Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT) Program at Tyler Junior College. TJC offers a two year program designed to provide understanding, proficiency and skill in Medical Laboratory Technology. Upon successful completion of this program, you will be awarded an Associate in Applied Science Degree and be eligible to apply for certification examinations as administered by the American Society for Clinical Pathologists (ASCP) or other certifying agencies for medical laboratory technology.  This program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS), 5600 N River Rd. Suite 720, Rosemont, IL 60018. NAACLS can be reached by telephone at 773-714-8880.

See our related documents for the application packet. PLEASE READ AND KEEP ENCLOSED INFORMATION!

Placement into the program is awarded to individuals based on consideration of all application information. A limited number of students can be accepted into each class; therefore, it is to your advantage to complete all requirements and submit your application by the application deadline. Application period dates are available from your advisor or the MLT department. Applications received by the deadline are guaranteed consideration for acceptance into the MLT Program during the first admission committee meeting. If the class for is not filled during the first meeting, applications arriving after the deadline will be considered, as spaces are available.

The application packet describes some of the interests and skills necessary for a medical laboratory worker who often works behind the scene. If you wish to discuss your choice of a career and learn what you will be doing, I invite you to come by the faculty offices. Ask questions, visit with students already in the program. Perhaps you are decided. That is wonderful. Complete your packet, turn everything in, and hopefully, we will see you in the Fall semester.

If you are in need of further assistance, please do not hesitate to call me at 903-510-2367 or leave a message at 903-510-2366/2662. Again, thank you for your interest.
