A minor in medical laboratory science requires a minimum of 12 semester hours of 300/400-level MLS courses. Students may choose courses from a specific laboratory science discipline (hematology, microbiology, clinical chemistry, and immunohematology) or from several disciplines. All prerequisite courses must be completed. Selection of a plan or program of study must be done in consultation with the program director. For completion of the minor, students must have a minimum overall cumulative grade point average of 2.00 in all courses specified as a requirement for the minor exclusive of prerequisite courses and a minimum of six hours in upper-level courses in the minor requirement must be taken through courses offered by Old Dominion University. Substitutes of non-MLS courses require the permission of the program director. Completion of the minor does not confer eligibility to take national certification examinations.
