I tried to register for MICB 323 and the class is full and I am blocked. I am trying to get into PA School. Can I take this course? I need the course with the lab component.

You would have to wait until the start of the class to try to obtain a course override from the instructor. This class is required for the Medical Laboratory Science Majors and they must all be registered first. Due to the nature of the labs in the course, the capacity of the class is restricted. A non-major will be allowed to register only if the capacity of the class has not been filled. We cannot guarantee entry to the course.
